My differential has no grease zerk !

On my older 1032 J.D. walk behind blower, the differential has no obvious way of lubrication. On other similar models I've seen a grease zerk installed. Does anyone know how the differential is lubricated? Also, do you think it feasible to drill a hole in the exact location as the ones I saw on other J.D. units and ilnsert a zerk for greasing the gears inside? Let me know what you think. thanks.

I thought that may be the case. In the video he was working on a smaller machine... and maybe a few years difference. Hard to say. I'll have to do that... I've done one similar to this years ago... it sure beats running the chance of wearing out the gears from neglect. Thanks.

Exactly... why it wasn't done at the factory is beyond me.

Vermont007...... that appears to be the impeller/auger gear box. I'm talking the differential gear box in the back by the friction disc, chains, etc.
