Yeah, that's been a small nagging issue. The fittings are a pain to get to. I have a right angle tip but haven't tried it. Just been using a needle tip one.

I used a right angle slide on, didn't work, the new fittings are so tight I couldn't force new grease in, it just leaked out from between the gun's fitting and the zerk. So I loaded the bed down with 300lbs of weight and used a straight fitting on the gun....

So is that the best way to do it then?

Does anyone know if a 45 degree zerk fitting will work on the wolverine bc before I got the right angle fitting I was taking the wheel an knuckle of the machine an greasing it that way

Like Fordtruckman said, thats the best way I found, and you better hold your tongue just right to get it to work.

I have considered 45 degree fittings and i think they would fit, but I think they are metric. I know the zerks on my grizzly have metric threads

I greased the front drive shaft U-Joint from the right side of the air box intake tube. I removed the rear shocks and sway bar and moved the air arms full up to get a 90 degree grease fitting adaptor connected.

Ok, I tried 45* zerks tonight. The uppers work great KIMG0445.JPG

The lowers, not so much. I had to remove the lower knuckle bolts in order to remove the old ones and install the new ones. Once reassembled they hit the control arm

Measured from the under side of the hex to the top they are .480"

If you could find shorter ones they would work. I also tried 90* fittings but they are the same height. If you do buy some, don't get them from Advance auto, they're junk!

I just ordered a set of these from eBay, at least I can reach them with the needle tip. I also ordered some stainless 45* zerks. they don't list a measurement the way I measured, but the overall length is shorter. they should be here Monday, I'll let you know if they work

2 on the drive shaft? My dealer told that there was only 1 on the front joint?
