Hi, have a question about the mower deck, model is a J44 are there grease zerks on the top side of the deck on the blade spindles? I checked out the bottom side and found none. This afternoon I changed oil in the engine, replaced the airfilter & pre-filter cleaned gapped and tested the spark plug, greased the front axle spindles front wheels one zerk on the bottom of the steering wheel shaft and one on the lift jackshaft is that about it for grease spots?
Well I joined the Case club yesterday

Sealed race bearings, no grease zerk on the J44 spindles.

Hi Cat385B, thanks for the information on the deck spindles, yes I found one in the front axle pivot managed to get my hand in there and the gun coupler on the zerk, got the wheel spindles and the wheel hubs plus the lift jackshaft in the middle of the mqachine and the steering shaft at the bottom.

The 444 is about ready for the season, changed oil new airfilters lubed the chassis serviced the hyd tank and transaxle and installed a new fuel filter, that got kind of messy kind of got the cart ahead of the horse took the gas line apart and the new fuel filter was still in the plastic bag ever try to rip one of those open with one hand while trying to hold a thumb over the gas line to keep gas from running out well it didn't work for me but its up and running good now just need some warm weather so I feel like going outside.

Hi all, well just tried the Case out, mowed out behind the barn for about a 1/2 hrs, mowed nice and all worked good its a little different watching the left side of the tractor/mower vs the RH side but it went good. Boy did it coll down here in MN today think our high was only about 52*F and right now its 49*F.

Well I've gotten another hr or so on the 444 mowing and I like it, handles really nice around the buildings etc really does a nice job of mowing now I'm getting use to the left hand discharge so that's going good. Still getting use to operating the travel lever I had a tendency to move it to fast and over shooting going from fast to slow and ending up in reverse or the other way around, guess I'll just have to keep practicing
