Looks like you'll be running gears instead of chain

Gave the 22r a good clean and a few new gaskets.

New stuff don't need grease.... old stuff it's a simple grease gun. UJoints that need to be greased are garbage.

I've always come to the conclusion that greasable are good. Every rig I have ever worked on has greasable nipples, I believe slingers have around 100 grease points. I grease up my vehicles once a month to squeeze out any grime/moistier. I'd rather have a weak u-joint break than a more important driveline part.

Sealed u-joints are that... sealed. You won't get moisture in them and theoretically last longer than greasable... if not the life of the vehicle.

New peterbuilts have greaseable ujoints but the warranty is void if you grease them within the first 150,000km. lol

Sealed and greaseable have there places. Depends, I am lazy so I like sealed but on my big truck I like greaseable.
