      There is a zerk fitting on the clutch release bearings on my 154.
      Myron mentioned it the other day so I searched it out. (Of course
      it's shown in the manual too, I guess I should have read it
      closer). Anyway, I haven't been able to connect my grease gun to
      this fitting. It's not positioned in the easiest place to access
      and I can't really see it, but I can feel it. Is the fitting
      positioned so that it points upward or does it point toward the
      front of the tractor? Would it help to remove the housing that
      covers the drive shaft? How does anyone else lube this fitting?
      Thanks for your advice.

          Thanks Danny, that's what I figured, I'll do that.  Is there anything else I need to know?  Will something other than the drive shaft/pto cover need to be removed and will standard tools work, or is it as easy as it seems?  (They seldom are).  The reason I ask is I'm currently keeping my lo boy at my cottage in northern Michigan, a 5 hour drive from home.  I don't have all the tools there that I have here at home and don't want to be missing something basic.  It's a long drive into town from my cottage.  Thanks again.

            I just used a large flat tipped screw driver to take the cover hold-down bolt out.  If the hold-down bolt won't come out with the screwdriver you may have to use vise-grips.  I also had to remove the gear shift knob and move the lever around a little to get the cover off.
             
            I used a grease gun with a flexible rubber hose to be able to get on the grease fitting.
             
            Keep an watch on the release bearing so as not to over grease it.
