    Got all but two. One is located in the rear wheel area (#5 in manual and #7 somewhere) 05 Scag tiger cub. Can't seem to see it, any help?

    Pull the wheels and look. On my Tiger there's one on either side that is attached to the brake. The only way to access them is to pull the wheels.

    While you're there, does the cub have a driveshaft? If so, look underneath and you will see several along it's length. The U-joints and the spline have them.

    I use the Jungle Jack on both Tigers and it works very well. It's just enough to allow the wheel to slide out for service.

    I had to hunt for fittings the first time too! :laugh:

    USE a jackstand while underneath!

    Turf tigers are the only one with a drive shaft,once a year is plenty on the inside of the wheels.

    Went through same thing this weekend with my Wildcat. Manual shows 18 fittings and I could only locate 16. I finally located the ones on the brake, leaving two to be found. The next day I am off work will probably go by my dealer and ask.
