    figure a 21" the zerks
    would be easy to find,but also check your manual or stop at your mower shop and have them help you out...

    On my jx75, there are only two lube points: the rear wheel bearings.

    I would just look around the mower for zerks. Or stop by a JD dealer and ask.

    On my JS63 there are several lube points.

    1. Where the axle comes out of the transmission (both sides)
    2. Where the axle goes through the sides of the deck (out towards the wheels)
    3. Inside the wheels, where there are gears and such
    4. Where the axle touches the wheel.

    You might want to go onto Deere.com they might have manuals available online.

    I would do what GLS says and ask the dealer, but on our 14sb's we only grease the rear wheel bearings...don't know if there are any other parts to grease?
