I have found greasing the steering box on the 140 JD hard to do. Getting the grease gun in the two holes, getting it on to the nipple, then trying to get the coupler off the nipple. Maybe it's just me. Or maybe there is another way to get at it, that you fellas do.
Any way, I changed the way I will grease it in the future, and maybe modify my other tractors too, fords and Masseys.
So I routed around in the shop and came up with some used fittings and line, then installed this today. Seems to work good.
Hope fully the pictures are good enough to see what I did.

Good idea!

We have a lot of equipment at work that have grease fittings relocated so you can easily get to them.

If a grease fitting is hard to get to, then it will probably be neglected!
