Also question is, how do you free up a stuck grease fitting?
Keep grease fittings and pins clean and clear of dirt, debris and hardened grease so they remain effective.
- Spray a petroleum-based spray lube onto a grease fitting or grease fitting pin, then wipe it off with a rag.
- Heat up clogged grease fittings and pins with a standard hair dryer or a heat gun on the low setting.
Also, how often should you grease U joints? Anytime you wheel in deep water or mud, you should grease all your u-joints and steering/suspension. If you don't wheel and don't have a lift, then they really don't need too much maintenance. I'd say check'n them or adding a pump or two every 5-6K is good advice.
Also to know is, how do you fill a grease flush fitting?
Take the flush fitting out, insert grease needle into hole and pump away, replace fitting when done. IIRC the larger needles fit the hole quite nicely.
Can you over grease AU joint?
Use a high quality, high-speed, lithium based wheel bearing grease like Mystic JT-6, and grease them often. There is no such thing as greasing a u-joint too much. If you don't like the grease getting all over the frame, make yourself a splatter shield out of sheet metal.
