I bought a grease zerk (zert?).. I bought a nipple from Ace harware.
I think it was 1/4 20. I made an adapter that was 1/4 20 inside
threads on one side and 1/4 28 outside threads (or whatever the
backgear spindle was) on the other side.

So, how do you get grease into the hole on the backgear shaft? Iwrote:
TheThe hole in the spindle pulley on my heavy 10 is marked "OIL".
spiralbackgear shaft is for grease and has a much larger hole and
addingcut in the shaft to distribute the grease. Not so on the spindle.
athefewdrops of oil to the gear faces is no big deal.According to the South Bend lubrication chart that hole in the
backgear shaft is for grease too. At least it is on my 10K.
