Does it say that for all fittings or just the prop one?

Which 90 degree tip are you using?

Do you think this one will be fine?




I went through and greased everything today. Not sure all zerks were really well lubed so decided to play it safe. All but one in right rear near diff could I get a decent fit on with flexible head grease gun.

Or maybe this one:

I was able to finally get that last one that was giving me problems in rear. I can definitely see where 90 degree will have value in doing this easier. I used the following grease gun.

Tretcherous, I have the same grease gun as you but I put another length of flexible pipe on the end. This way I can lay under the front and grease it easily with my fingers coming in from both sides to get the gun on the zerk. The longer hose allows the gun to lay on the floor until I am ready to pump it. I then can hold the tip on the zerk and with other hand reach down and pump the gun. I just found it easier. I have a hoist in my garage so I just lift the one end at a time and set it on stands so I can lay right under it. Floor jack would do the same thing.
