Greasing help

Noob question here, how do I grease this type of fitting? I was happy to get greasable u joints, but it doesn't help if I can't get grease into them! Obviously the normal zerk attachment does me no good. Click image for larger version

I am not sure but it looks like the Needle Nose fitting. If so you need one of these.

Amazon.com: Lincoln Lubrication 5803 Grease Needle Nozzle: Automotive

Search needle nose grease fitting and that should help

Well silly me, I picked up a cheap one from pep boys (advance didn't even have them) as I didn't want to wait on shipping, and the opening is entirely too wide, and it's generally of poor quality. I have a nice one in order, and the crap one is going back.

I understand sometimes it is better to just order the best and be done with the rest. If you need it done now, it might be worth it to bring it some place and have them do it, but I doubt you need it done right now so sit back order the correct piece and do it when it comes in.

Haha, "need" is all relative. I "need" it like I "need" a bacon cheeseburger.

No, I've got plenty to work on in the meantime, and greasing up the u joint isn't really holding me up. I worked on my parking brake instead, and the needle fitting should be arriving Wednesday.

The funny thing is, the online reviews for the one I'm getting are written by folks who did exactly what I did - got a crappy one at a parts store and then got this one.

I have done that before bought a cheap tool just to the job done then ordered the better one.

Let us know how is goes.
