Zerk/grease nipple fix

They are british thread and my dealer charges 39 cents a piece so I bought 10.
I believe they are British tapered thread and they are not expensive once you find them.

I did all my service work today, cleaned all the grease fittings and replaced some broken/missing zerks. Anyone else have trouble getting grease in the fittings in the front end underneath the tractor? I removed every fitting, tested them to make sure they took grease, replaced them, and couldn't get grease in it. I even took it back out, took a screwdriver in and cleared out the grease in there to make sure there wasn't any dried grease blocking it, put it all together and it won't take grease. I have a new grease fitting on order for my grease guns, so maybe that is the issue. Do i need to raise the front end with the loader to get the grease in there? Has to be something wrong.

If grease won't go in, yeah, you might try changing or preferably removing the loading on whatever you are trying to grease to see if that helps.
