Tried turning em, no joy. Imma try to find a joint that has the fitting on the cap, those always made more sense to me amyway.

The 1310 versions are expensive compared to their cross mounted zerk counterparts.

1310-1 I think and they're $30 apiece.

My cv is hard to get to as well. I got a 90 degree needle fitting for my grease gun. Now it is better. Thought about drilling a hole in the floor above it to get at it easier. Just got some Walmart marine grease. Pretty cheap but really sticky. I guess I'll try it for a bit...

I use a needle zirk for pretty much everything if I can - mines the same as Grandboost's on the right;

Ill see your injector tool and raise you a needle injector

Thats a needle injector. I think its used to pierce through whatever it is youre trying to grease. Like something without a grease fitting like a CV boot or lower ball joint

Good information! I now want to crawl under all the jeeps and grease 'em up!

So, the one-handers are nice? I've never tried them, though trying to hold the fitting on a zerk and pump the gun with your other two hands can be quite tricky.

Trying to hold the fitting on the zerk and then using two hands to pump the gun is a mess waiting to happen. Besides, the one handers gives you a sweet Popeye pumed look. All forearms! Glad I use it as my workout since my other one was leading to blindness...

The needle adapters used on the hose and then using a two handed grease gun literally takes four people to operate and even then it still makes a mess. I would highly suggest to everyone to get a mini gun and putting the long needle attachment screwed into it, not fitted with a zerk coupler. Just plumb it on there. You'll have a lot more control over your grease and not end up ten miles down the road trying to figure out what that smell is.

[hint: it's grease slung off your rear driveshaft onto your exhaust]
