  • Something New

    All year round I do different projects to my machines. We are not a super busy center, so I can do a lot more than other mechanics.

    Anyways, tonight I did a "NEW" project. I decited to pull off all my upper ball lift yoke assemblies.(only two at a time) I cleaned yoke and pulley, and lubed inside of yoke and ball lift tube(where yoke mounts). Most of them came off pretty easy but I had a couple that were stuck.

    Yes, I could of shot grease inside of zert fitting on yoke but I thought I could clean shaft and spring also. I did all 12 in about 3 1/2 hours. I didnt take long and now I have piece of mind that the yokes are well protected with red sticky grease.

    Just thought I would share.

    Clutch,Anytime I work on a ball lift I always do exactly what you did.Its way better to apply the grease by hand than to depend on that fitting.Good Job!
