    Whats the worst that could happen?

    So my wife and I decided to keep our 2002 GTi since we had so much fun with it last weekend but now I really want to make sure we have as few problems with it as possible.

    What if the grease fitting on the front of the drive shaft runs out of grease?

    How often do I need to add oil to the impeller cone?

    The grease fitting on the PTO needs to be reshot about every 20 hours, and then, with minimal grease. It doesn't evaporate, and if the boot isn't leaking, it will stay there.

    The pump lube should be changed once a year. We prefer to do it in the fall, as "if" it accidently developed a leak duing the summer, the water can be removed before it has had all winter to do bearing damage. You never "add" it though, as it doesn't evaporate or leak out.

    Should I be re-greasing my drive shaft every 20 hours or so too?

    Yes. I don't by hours though, occassionally, I just eyeball the boot. When it shrinks in a little, then I pump a little bit in there.
