    Let us know what you think about that set up after you get the stuff together to service it. Never seen a fitting like that, but I have a small needle grease gun. I use it when I'd like to use grease on something that will allow about an 1/8" hole. No fitting involved. I just us the tapered point of the fitting to force grease into/through the 1/8" hole.

      I have a grease needle for my gun but always thought it was for injecting grease under grease seal lips or other inacessible places....never knew there was a special zerk just for a needle.....live and learn here!!

        A LockNLube "Narrow Needle Dispenser" did the trick. It's an 1/8" wide pin with a tapered end, not the kind that looks like a hypodermic needle. The pointed end was just the right size to depress the ball in the fitting.

        Worked like a charm, although it took 10x more pumps than a regular zirc. I see no advantage and only minor disadvantage. It is what it is. Got the job done anyway.

          10x pumps was my concern, but agree, it is what it is. Anything beats no zerk!
