    96 slt 780 oil line to the drive shaft area

    i could use a diagram of the oil lines and what started this thread was to understand the oil line that goes to the drive shaft area just below the grease nipple - i suspect its for the drive line lube ?

    i "think" you are taking about the speedometer tube. this comes from a nipple/pick up under the drive shaft, and goes to your MFD. it is a clear, 1/8 inch line.

    the only oil lines you have are one feed line from the tank, to the oil pump, then the 3 lines from the pump to the motor.

    There is also a clear tube floating around down there that connects to the battery vent if you are using a conventional battery.
