Drag links move fore and aft with ball and socket ends.

That first photo shows a shaft that rotates.

Follow it to the steering box.

Some Cat engines also had a grease point on the top of the radiator fan bearing

Here is part of my Gillig manual for the Hydraulic system. Since the Gillig was likely the predecessor for the Dynomax chassis, maybe it has some relevance to the discussions.

I will attach similar info for the Steering box in the next post.

Here is the parts explosion of the steering box.

I do see what appears to be a drain plug, item 40, in the list but no zerk.

His picture is of a right angle gear box in the shaft from the steering wheel to the steering box.

Yes. My 3126 has a zerk on the fan bearing. Lay on top of engine to grease it.

thank you guys for digging this... twinboat is correct, i looked at it again and chased the big bar to a real "gearbox" (i overlooked at this earlier), where i saw the hydraulic lines in and out. there is no zerk; i guess it might be cc's error it said there was one.

here is the real gearbox. the top bar is the same one from the "steering box" as shown on my first photo above.



now a new question comes up - the "steering box" - it's leaking somewhat but no lube for it (no zerk, no hydraulic lines). over time it will be dry up. how to lube it?

i meant this box (photo from earlier post):

You need to identify it and find a service instruction sheet for it.

I'm sure it hold some kind of 90 weight gear oil.

I see it is TRW brand. See if you can find a part number on it.

All the trucks have brake slack adjusters. Some Speedco guys are just lazy.

there is a plate on it, it's TRW but the rest info is unrecognizable.

sharp eyes in your link. it says "TRW Per 110 FAA. Looks like a device that changes the direction of a drive". well, the description sounds right but the photos do not look like the actual box on my rig. then i fuss googled "PBR110FAA", it's "TRW HOUSING,MECHANICAL DRIVE". interesting. the only letter i am not sure is the first one. i was hoping in the hit list some thing like TRW*steering*gear* to show up, but didn't happen.

during daytime i tried to call TRW, thinking their tech support would be able to identify what it is. guess they are busy to make more parts, none of their customer support numbers i tried could get through...

Speedco has always done my diesel pushers oil and filters. I have always done the greasing. They also do an oil sample to keep track of any abnormal wear when I have the oil changed. They do it for less than I can so it is an easy call for me.
