I have seen stuff like this at low prices, what are they some kind of China built assembly? Hard to believe you can get much for this low amount. I seen some gearboxes for Shihl trimmers for about same amount and they run almost 3 times the amount at dealer.

IIRC, remove the spindle bearings as if you were going to replace them then just drill and tap a fitting into the side of the spindle and screw in a zerk fitting. With the bearings out you need to remove one dust shield from each to allow the grease to get to them. Reinstall bearings with removed dust shield side facing the inside of spindle and fill with your favorite type of grease. Too much work to go through IMO but that is just me. Non greasable bearings will last just as long as greasables.
