Did on search on this and couldn't find an answer.

On the 2004 600 SDI, are there grease fittings for the crank bearings?

I know there is a fitting under the secondary, but I thought that was for the speedo cable?

Any help is appreciated.

No, you don't grease your crank bearings. The steering rack, yes, but NOT the crank bearings. They are "lubed for life".

Glad to hear it. Just heard about a guy on an F7 that messed up his engine this weekend because he hadn't greased his crank bearings.

They were just pulling your crank... no engine has grease fittings on the crankshaft. The jackshaft also has sealed bearings, no lubing required. Behind the clutch is a grease fitting for the front axle shaft, left side only.

On the same topic - what exactly is the Jackshaft?

Do any of the shafts need to be greased?

Jackshaft is the upper shaft that the secondary clutch is attached to. Typically these are sealed bearings and have no grease fittings. The lower shaft through the track is the Drive shaft and has a grease fitting in behind the clutch like you mentioned. Jay
