            I'm not like these new gen techs to wear latex gloves 24-7 but when I repack brgs and such i'll throw them on. Otherwise I end up using 20 rags

                  Maybe the u-joint cavity was filled with 600W instead of grease::

                    Geez, just finished some equipment bearing work and forgot the gloves. They were right there too. Old school, senior moment, etc.

                      Talking about using gloves. While I was still being paid to do mechanic work, like back in the 70's and 80's, folk would come into the shop and ask why I was wearing surgical gloves to work on their motorcycles. I would always tell them, "just because I have to be a mechanic, doesn't mean I have to be dirty."

                            Tool to Unplug Grease Fittings
                            by Tom Wesenberg
                            Here's a tool to unplug grease fittings with old dried grease in them.
                            I used to see similar tools in the stores, but haven't seen any recently.

                            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 Apple Green Wheels Rule
                            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.

                            For some reason I don't have a search capability anymore. I was trying to find threads on what bearing grease do you use?

                            by chas1930
                            very new to the Model ! vehicles. Inherited from my 95 year old father. 3 yrs ago I did manage to start and drive by myself. So I am learning very slow.
                            OK, my question is... rear wheel bearing were installed 4 years ago on the restore process. Now 2,500 miles later I would like to know how to lube them. I think they are sealed but not sure. I see two fittings on the backing plate. Original...

                            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?...

                            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...

                            by carolinamudwalker
                            I searched the forum and checked the service bulletins but didn't find an answer. Did the cable end to the meter have some kind of felt washer to prevent the grease from entering the meter? Mitch set me straight about completely removing the turtle when greasing the UV joint. I had only pulled one bolt out and stopped when I saw grease at the bolt hole. Big glob of black grease obscuring the numbers...
