Just picked up a new grease gun today so I can do all my own lubing when I do my oil changes. I've recently discovered that my drive shaft needs to be replaced due to lack of proper lubrication. I won't be leaving it up to anyone else anymore.

I have a grease gun but it has that damn fixed metal shaft going to the adapter...I have a flex line but can't get the adapter off of the hard line, anywhere I can get just the little adapter for zerk fittings?

when you put the new tube of grease in dont tighten the top of the grease gun all the way down.leave it a little loose and pump it.this will let air out and it should pump good then.

we use grease guns on a daily basis.... iv been through 10+ tubes of grease EASY in 1 day working on machinery. Fuck the hand grips, we got these!


Fuck those! I used one of these style ones with those big buckets of grease. It makes it incredibly more easy to grease a semi then to fuck with a bunch of little grease cartages

Northern has them, they're like $250.

we use the 300lb barrel pump with in-floor plumbing and hookups on the walls.

Those are piles :imo with as much greasing as we do in the summer, I usually stick to a hand pump with the bent tips. Gets shit done and never brakes :anitoof:

I think you are mistaken. It is a toy:lol:

HELL YEAH IT IS!!!! Our grease gun at that international dealership I worked at was a blast. It wouldnt shot a stream with the normal end. BUT i had a small hand held grease gun for my impact. It wasn't a Zerk fitting it was just a small hole so the small grease gun had a small 1/32 needle. Well I would take the needle fitting from the small one put it on the BIG one. WOW you wanna talk about shooting a stream!!!! I could hit shit over 6 bays away!!! The best part is it looked like a that spider web shit! Good times! Good times!!!! :read:
