I was giving Luigi a some grease today and noticed that the center pivot has not been greased for a long time, the rest of the machine had been greased when I got it last spring. I have tried two different size tips on the grease gun and neither will fit down into the hole that the zert is in. Is there some special tip that I need? How do you GK owners grease this one?

I owned a GK that I sold to PhilGK, a member here.  He might be able to help you out with this.

Cat385B, that needle tip looks like it might do the trick. I'll pick one up and give it a try. Thanks.

 

jpswift1, I'm hoping someone like PhilGK shows up on this, seems to me it would not have bee designed this way.

Just for an end to the story... a new zerk fixed the problem. Feel kinda foolish, but I never had the outside of zerk wear out before.
