Don't do what I didn't do

3 posts in this topic

I was trying to get the Simplicity lawn tractor ready for the season and found out that the zerks on the front end and wheels won't accept grease. I applied some heat but no dice. They're compression zerks so this could get interesting. Ideas on how to remove and replace?

FYI don't just worry about sharpening the blade - check the manual and lube it up. I may have already damaged one of the wheels and I sure don't want to screw up the spindles.

Would it be possible to drill a small hole in the zerk and use an EZ out to back it out?

You can drill them out just dont use to big of bit. If you cant get the bit started grind off the top of the zerk. Now you will have a starter hole. After this clean out the hole good with penatrating oil and a small pick. Use a new comprssion zerk or tap threads into the hole for a easily replaceable zerk.
