Feeling Stupid

I'm always doing something to my 90's era LT1000 (917.255581) and yesterday was no different. I was just doing some routine maintainance on it when it dawned on me I'd never greased the front axle. I grabbed the grease gun and lo and behold, no zerks! Back to the shed for a 1/4-28 tap, drill and bit, and two zerks. Disassembled both spindles and tapped the spindle bores. Odd thing about this axle is that there are indentations for the zerks, but the factory never drilled them out. Anyway, I put everything back together and shot grease into the new zerks until it just started to ooze out. I hooked up my dethatcher and off I went across the yard. WOW! The little LT almost acts like it has power steering now, as the difference in steering is night and day. Feel so dumb for overlooking this when I got it...:banghead3

So that's the difference between the LT1000 and the LT2000? Zerks!

I wish they had zerks in more places.
