When one tries too many things at same time

I had a brain fart yesterday doing some work on the blower I decided to put zerks on auger tube and drilled halfway thinking the inside shaft was full length. Well the auger tube was empty duh, oh well I went ahead and finished the install and pumped a full cartridge for both sides.
I can say now I have a grease counterweight in front.

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

Do you mean that the only thing you accomplished was filling the INSIDE of the tube with grease?
If so at least you know that it won't rust from the inside out.
If that is the case can't you take the zerks out and put plugs in?
Maybe some of the grease will leach out from the inside when you operate it?

I hate shoveling SNOW!

Still might be WIN-WIN either way.

I filled the tube and the grease got to the 4" shaft each side.
Likely there won't be any leaching with the grease I used Castrol Synthetic at $13.00 a cartridge. Apparently very good for water repellent.

Normex has too much money tied up in it in grease to let it go. It will still be blowing snow for his grandson in 2112.
