Good information on here to help you decide which one to go back with. Randy Dupree has a lot of knowledge in this area.
Good luck,

Randy B

one of the problems with the grease is displacement. to grease something you need to remove the old grease. a path. Grease is hydraulic medium, same with oil, they all need a dynamic path.

second problem with grease is the grease gun is unbelievably powerful. I use a simple Napa autoparts gun to tighten the tracks on my 32,000 lb excavator. same gun. if you dont see grease exit and the pump action is hard the dynamic path is blocked and new paths are used. this is what blows seals.



I pulled my pump and found the spline in good shape and grease was healthy so I cleaned and reinstalled. problem I see is the exit path when greasing is a cavity in the mating area that had old grease. this eventually fills especially when someone is a 'big greaser'.

I have a zerk cleaner tool that works great to clear grease. it is a piston you load with diesel oil then strike it with a hammer. clears the grease adds some cleaning lubeto reduce the grime then you re-grease after a hour to clear the diesel contaminated lube. I would not consider this tool for use on any part where there are seals involved.

MAYBE ........ the wetspline mod, ;with dynamic in and out path, ;BUT not connected to the transmission oil, ;BUT connected to a Zerk can be explored.

So got mine apart..Pto Seal was starting to leak=====Saved my splines!! good shape


So Paul ran a extra line to adapter..


Why do we need that extra line as the splines will flood from PTO bearing with seal out right??

Woody I ran the extra line as Rick said to flood splines, tried it without line had little oil but not enough. Reason I know is oil barely came out shaft that had grease zerk. With extra line flow oil poured out shaft only way to get there flood splines.

I just put a tee in the line and ran to cavity. I installed a gasket between the pump and the PTO to prevent leaks when that area fills with fluid. I believe it is an SAE "B" connection.

Some have said that they did not want to do this because if the Hyd pump seal blew it could fill the tranny with Hyd oil.
I solved that problem by filling the Hyd system with Transynd.

In thinking this through, what do you think about just moving the current line to the cavity? This would fill the cavity, flow the oil back through the PTO and into the tranny. ??????
I did not do this but it seems like it would work, maybe even better than two lines.
