I picked up  a pair of MTD rear deck wheels the other day.  Went to put them on this morning and noticed a stem with a hole in the end protruding from the center of the wheel.  Inside is a narrow groove through the hub parallel with the bolt.  Seems that MTD is now putting a lube port on their rear deck wheels.  Fronts don't have that yet or I got a pair of carryovers.  A grease gun with a needle nose fitting works great for greasing the wheels.  Should make them last a lifetime if we remember to do it.
