Hi there in the process of repairing my 48 inch blower. I am working on the driveshaft and noticed both universal joints do not have a grease fitting. Just was wondering if any of you folks out there drilled a hole tapped and installed the fitting. it appears to be a tight fit. Finally check out the pic. I stripped the blower housing and plow blade both items ready for rust treatment mustangman

​I agree with Kenny.  Looks like a sealed bearing set up and if you did drill & tap a hole there is no place for the grease to go.  Only way to know is to take it apart and see if there are holes through the center of the cross.

There's no way the drill and tap. The cross part is a block with holes drilled into it and then pin's inserted into those holes and the caps fit onto the pins. I've tried so this is how I know.

This is called a pin and block. You can buy the pins and caps on ebay or amazon. The pins are hardened so you will need a good drill bit to drill through them.There are theads  on here to show how its done. Its the ujoint crossover threads big help for me when i was doing mine.
