Greasing universals- special fittimgs?


#1

while I m working under my jeep I m cleaning excess grease/oil/dirt accumulations and greasing fittings

the problem is that while my numerous universal joints have grease fittings, my gun tip won t fit in to the fitting on them.

is there a special tip I can use or do I have to do some disassembly to access them?

Here a $30 adapter kit from Autozone, looks like it has some small-diameter ones for situations like yours:

Agree with Caddyman, 54 to 58 years ago when I greased cars we used a needle gun to grease u-joints. I especially remember a customer that had a 37 Pontiac because it had 37 grease points.
