PostSubject: Shaft Lube   Sat Dec 24, 2011 8:18 pm

The hypoid gears of the shaft drive at the back wheel are in a sealed unit (full of gear oil), but the unit has a cog that meshes with a similar one on the back wheel which needs greasing; also the shaft runs up to the engine and has splines that fit into a universal joint; also needs lube. See excellent file in maintenance section of how to do it!
