Below shows where the fittings are and how to get to them.

Pic 1) Accessing the area. Remove the wing nut (arrow) and bolt. This is in front of and below the left floor board and to the rear of the fuel filter:



Remove left-half of cover(the one with the label on it) COMPLETELY. Just pull it from the top and turn and angle it out.



**THE ELUSIVE FITTING**
Here is the grease fitting to be lubed(red arrow on left). It will most likely be covered with old grass clippings.




There is another fitting to be accessed from below tractor. It is just above and in front of the mower deck. Also see picture above of right red arrow. The fitting is below this area.:

Reinstall cover(watch the tabs. see cover pic above and look at green and red arrows), put in bolt and wing nut.

Easy as can be.

That's the lil rascal. See how easy it would be to miss. A lot of folks do and have steering problems.

I always start the job by blowing that area out real good.

You know, I just left those two cover plates off. That way when I clean off my tractor after each use, I blow all the grass and crab that collects up by the steering gears down and out. Not sure if that is kosher, but it works.

I was thinking the same. Don't know if it will cause air circulation problems or cause more debris to get caught in engine shield.

Good info. I can't get my bearings in regards to orientation with those photos, but the plastic hood 2K steering is definitely different from the sheet metal hood 2K series. It almost looks like the "gear box" is cast iron here. It's cast aluminum on the metal hood models. I broke mine due to my own stupidity & split the aluminum case open. These might fare better as long as you lube them.
