    This will work best or you can use a needle tip adapter..

      Grease zerks
      by Great Lakes Greg
      I bought the grease gun adapter for the Model A grease fittings, and exactly as I expected, it doesn't work. Grease everywhere except where it needs to go. As I understand it, the press in fittings are 5/16". Is there a modern fitting that will work with a conventional grease gun?...

      I'm replacing the original grease fittings with modern zerks and having a devil of a time removing the old press-in ones. Anybody got any tips?

      Grease Fittings - Apology
      by JohnB15632
      The shock links that come form from a major supplier come with an angled original grease fitting. I have determined that this is a 3/8" threaded fitting. This fitting hex is 7/16 wrench, therefore, the threads are 3/8".

      I want to go with the modern grease fittings. The largest angled grease fitting is 5/16" that I have found so far.

      Does anyone out there know...

      Grease viscosity question.........
      by Grit Kid
      I use red and I noticed today being hot and sorts, I was looking for something and I open the door to a cabinet that has my grease guns. I notice the grease had leaked out onto the shelf. I guess this would be from being so hot and even hotter in a steel garage. If this is happening to the guns, what about Sarah's joints that take grease? Seems the viscosity is breaking down.

      Grease Gun Recommendations
      by BudP
      Spring is coming (I hope!) and it's getting close to greasing the 30 or so zerks on the Model A's. For a long time I used Henry Ford's small cartridge gun. Then I bought a Lincoln pump action but many times there just is not enough room to get a good pump. So I am now leaning to buying either a grease gun that runs off a rechargeable battery or one that I can run off my compressor. I am seeking...

      modern grease fittings
      by Olderthandirt
      I want to replace the original grease fittings on my front spindles.
      What size should I use, what size drill and tap?
      Never done this before. Eventually want to replace all the old fittings.
      Right now the car is about 50/50 new and original.
