RE: Re: Zerks !



Removed one of the Zerks from a new tie-rod last night - don’t recall the tie-rod brand if it had one, but they came from PST.  You can see a significant dimensional difference between the tie-rod supplied Zerk on the left, and one purchased from NAPA last night.  The NAPA Zerk is longer and necks down to a smaller diameter - should grip the grease gun better looks like......

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.

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........--
