Re: Grease fittings on drive shaft of 60" deck?
I've sheared more of those u- joint bolts than I can count on my 60" deck. Solution for me was to cut threads into both sides of the yoke and run hardened hex cap screws in from both sides, effectively swedging them into the holes in the splined gearbox shaft. Double nut each one and a little Loctite on the threads also helps. Going on two years and no issues.
And credit goes to Sheldon for this idea. I see he has already answered your other question.
