    SLT 780 Driveshaft Bearing

    Quick question about the drive shaft bearing on this 96 SLT 780. The bearing has zurk fitting on it but there is a piece of tubing stuck on the zurk fitting which I believe runs up to the top of the console and dead ends into a sort of grommet that is open ended. Does this make sense and what does the tubing do?

    I think that tube might be the battery vent hose. It's not supposed to go to the grease zerk, and it's the only tube I can think of that would be close enough to the bearing to be installed wrong.

    Or it could be the speedometer tube that is supposed to go on the pitot. white plastic nipple under the drive shaft that goes up to the MFD.

    I believe that one is in place. The battery vent makes sense, although I have no idea where it would connect to. There is just a battery in this sled no box just the metal hold down strap.

    the battery will have a little nipple hanging off of one side, close to the top. If it doesn't have a nipple, it might be maintenance free.

    Yeah no nipple on the battery. May be why someone just plugged the tubing on the zurk fitting
