hey everybody. I'm a new memeber to this site but I have read lots of material on here in the past. Very helpful. Anyway, I bought a 1965 squire 10 this past weekend. It seems to be a great tractor just needs a little work. First off, while greasing the zerk on the right axle housing, I noticed grease came out of the left side housing. Is that ok? I also need to rebuild the bgb so I may be posting about that in the future. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to GTtalk.  I'm not familiar with the Square 10 but I'm sure some one who is will be by before long to answer your question.  Also please check out our manuals section.

Yes, grease should come out of both ends of the axle when you pump grease into the fitting on the axle tube. The axle passes through a bushed tube. The axle, external differential, and inner axle tube bushings are lubed with grease. The tube itself, passes through the transaxle housing which is bushed. The transaxle housing bushings and the outer axle tube are lubed with gear oil. The outer axle tube passes through seals that are pressed into the transaxle housing and retain the gear oil.
There are a few threads regarding the BGB (bevel gear box) rebuild. You can also ask questions here and search online for more info when the time comes.

I'll work on getting some pics up. I'm really tickled to death with this tractor. I only saw grease come out of the left side. Maybe I should just keep pumping unti it comes out the right side as well?

You may see grease come out, just to the right of the grease fitting on the axle tube. Usually, grease will seep out of this area after you pump grease into the axle tube, then use the tractor for a while.

Ok. I didn't see any come out the right side. Just the left. That's why I thought it was strange. Just wanted to make sure I did break a seal or something. Thanks for the help.
