    Thanks for the info, I got it local for a song, i think, paid just a few hundred, looks to just need some maintance and some grease. Hope it works, looking to put in a small garden at the farm. Thanks Owen.

    Owenf I also have a Model 40 tiller ( 1984) and just had to replace bearing on tiller shaft. Did you find out what or how to lubricate this lower bearing in chain case?
    My dealer really just said to pack grease in chain case but there has to be a better way. Any help would be appreciated
