    First I would check your owners manual or download it from Scag.com. However you need to remove the 1/8" plug on the caster support arm, then I fill until the hub cover on top of the caster spindle lifts out. I then remove some of the grease from under the hub and at the top of the caster spindle and then reset the hub to the top of the support arm with a properly sized socket to tap it to seat it without damaging the hub body.:usflag:

    Dixie Chopper's caster fork cap comes with a small hole in the side, One greases until a little grease spits out the hole. This also helps prevent the possibility of over greasing and pushing the cap up.

    Drilling a hole in yours once off could save you having to remove and reinstall the cap every time you grease.
