Here is a few shots of the handles. nothing special. center shaft is hollow with a hole at each lever. there is a a grease fitting at one end so all levers get greased at once. I'll order some rubber grips once the tractor is painted.

there is a a grease fitting


Never use the stuff. Gets my tractor all dirty and makes my hands icky.:bigrofl:

It's amazing how many of these old tractors appear to never have had any grease pumped into the zerks when I get them. Really a good testament to how well they were built. :thumbs:

I call unused zerk fittings 'jerk fittings' cuz that describes the owners that don't use them. :D

Clean oil, fresh fuel and greased fittings will keep equipment going almost forever.

If they wanted them greased they could at least put them somewhere so you can at least get grease on the area intended.... I think ujoints have got to be the worst EVER! I've a ton of r&d on this and the pros and cons are endless. Personally I use them and if I think it should have one, I put one there if possible . I like Red'n Tacky from Lucas , works great and sticks and stays put! White grease or lithium is crap in my book and I stay away from it.

I use Lucas diesel treatment but I've never heard of their grease.
How thick does it get when it is below zero outside?
