Question Lube Fittings

Dont know if this has been covered, but cant find anything when searching the forum.

How do I know if the fittings on me D-90 need to be lubed, and how do I know if I have put enough lube in them? I do not want to blow and of the rubber boots off the fittings.

Sorry mike I tried to find some similar threads, but no dice.

Matt...

On the prop shafts just add grease until you see fresh grease start oozing out then wipe off excess. On the sliding part of the prop shaft I usualy add a couple of pumps with the grease gun. I do this maintenence every oil change and before and after I have gone wheeling. Don't worry about blowing seals out.

Matt, if you can't find what you are looking for by searching then there is no problem with a new thread. And Kevin is right on, but before I grease them I give them a good shake to see if any of the UJs are loose.
