I am the owner of 2 oc3 machines. The newest is a loader machine from a member here.
The first needs rings, right after purchase. So, on to look for another. Second is good, cept a carb that needs some work. Has aux. tranny, geared starter, a rebuild per report etc. they should be fun

If you are in "farm country"  get yourself some "corn head grease". It is better than oil or grease.

Did you try sliding the shaft forward or back on the splines to see if the shaft will slip out?

The ujoint brgs from Zimmermans were Moog 870,  I asked the local autoparts store if he had a listing for these and he did but were none stock. they could probably get them by special order, there price was 37.50 each, still cheeper.  I guess I'll be pulling the engine.

If from now on you use oil instead, on a hot day the oil will probably mix with the grease, thinning it out so it flows around in there better. You can kind of visualize this happening. Not sure if the theory really works though.

Probably, the grease tends to hold dirt & other debris in it, turning it into grinding paste. This usually does more damage than just oiling it before each use.

That's a whole u joint/yoke assembly, the cross itself should be much cheaper.

My  '55 OC3 has a front-end loader and rippers in the back.  I only use it a couple of times in the summer.  My question is this - because the oil leaks out of my track wheels, I put grease in instead.  Am I doing more harm than good?

Followed up on your advice and turns out that I also had debris plugging the top fitting on the sediment bowl, in the stem going up into the tank.
Only took 20 years to finally figure it out!  Thanks for the help.
