Re: Zerks !



 Ricky, have had the same problem over the years. My soultion was to put small caps to cover the zerk head. Purchased on line a number of years ago and have not had a problem since as long as the boot doesn't split or tear ans lets dirt in. Dirt is the culprit.

Why is it so hard to get grease thru a Zerk fitting!? Changed the oil, filter and lubed the ?62 Dart wagon last night. Started out with the Zerks because I expected the battle. 
 Good quality Lincoln pistol grip grease gun and quality grease. Ball joints upper and lower no problemo. But several tie-rod ends just feel solid and don?t seem to take any grease. Using a straight tip it squeezes out around the tip. Using a 90 degree 
 tip that clips on same story. Use a needle tip get a perfect seal, yet it?s just solid when trying to pump grease...... 


 


OK ? Is it just me or what. All new suspension 3 years ago and 2,000 miles ago........... Is that why, the new ball joints just fit tightly together blocking the grease flow? 


 


Even when lubing my 2008 GMC ¾ ton truck which has 11 zerks, it always seems a pain and a giant mess. About to throw in the towel and go have it done with a pneumatic grease gun. 
 I do see Lincoln makes a handheld power grease gun. But then again with no lift your crawling around underneath trying to get in all these tight places, making getting a seal on the Zerk even tougher........
