Question about a lift bolt on a 1229

Post by Dual Wielding » 03 Jun 2019 14:09

While inspecting a 1229 that I'm working on I found that the lift bolt sounds a quite rough when I push down on it.

Does this sound like it's making the wrong noise?

It sounds to me like the grease might be dirty so I'm wondering if I should take it apart, clean it and give it new lube.

It needs new high viscosity grease. It returns too fast indicating it has lost its damped lower function. 500k diff lube from an R/C hobby shop works well.
