Ez-lube Axles

Well greased the axles for the first time today. All went as advertised new grease in old grease came out. As Herk had warned in another thread watch out for the zerk fittings. Two of mine were just laying inside when I took the rubber seal out. One question I have though is what's the easiest way to get the grease gun off the zerk fitting. I don't know if it's because I have a new gun but I had a heck of a time pulling it off the fitting.

Usually by just tilting the grease gun one way or the other it comes off. At least mine does. Trying to pull straight doesn't work so well.

You got that right! It definitely won't come off pulling straight out.

Quite often the end has an adjustment.

Just watched a video and the mechanic said to just tilt it at an angle and twist and it worked every time he did it. I'll have tomtrynit next time.

What type and brand grease did you use for your axles?

Dexter has a list of approved greases. I suspect that isn't on it!
