As a farmer with machinery and a owner of trucks, I have plenty of aggravating experience with zerks.  Dried grease or dirt is usually the problem . make sure you clean off dirt on the end of the zerk before snapping on the grease gun fitting. . I have more leverage with a pump lever gun using both hands. Also a longer hose to be able to "prop" the gun against the ground or other place  to secure it.  Make sure your "nozzle" is straight with the hole in the zerk. You may need to get a new nozzle  to keep a tight seal  as they do get weak and let grease squirt out around the zerk. You may need to take the zerk out and then pump some grease thru  it to dislodge dirt.   In extreme conditions , heat the area around the zerk  while trying to pump grease into it. That will ruin the zerk , but may get the grease flowing...................................MO

Great website of products Nico; thank you for sharing that information and
the solution.  I have logged that site into my "Oil & Lubrication" file.
Zerk caps is a great idea to keep the dirt/debris out of the ball fitting.

Ricky,

I have found that some zerks has a stuck ball fitting that need a bit of
solvent to loosen them before they will accept grease; not sure if it is
because
of imported/improper manufacture or what...let us know how it works out.

Subject: Zerks !








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........--
