I have been going around the 1600 greasing all the zerks and replacing clogged ones. I got to wondering about the zerk on the clutch release bearing. It has a long tube that disappears into the bell housing. That tube is clear full of old hard grease. I dont see any way to remove it to clean it out. I dont want to risk over-greasing the bearing and having it spin out on the clutch disk.

Having hydrapower seems to mean there is no inspection cover for me to remove and look around in there.

I am using NLGI 2 Lithium EP lube. If that matters.

Any ideas?

That's a tough one. Too much pressure could split that old hose. The only way to get the hose out of there is to have the engine out.

I wonder if you could heat up a piece of wire,not too hot so it does any damage,but run it down inside the hose to soften that old grease? If you do,I'd take it off the side of the bell housing where it bolts on so I could get it as straight as possible while trying to shove it in there.

Thanks. I replaced the zerk fitting but it is the 18" of hose that leads to the clutch bearing that is full of old hard grease. If I flush it out with solvent and this tool, all that grease and solvent ends up on the clutch disc. I cant get in there to clean it out without splitting the tractor.

The tool looks like a good plan for the rest though. Thanks!
