Re: Ball joints with grease zerks
Not to beat the topic to death, but an Alemite fitting has a one way check valve and is every bit as effective as a Zerk fitting, but it does need a bit of extra effort to clean prior to applying the grease nozzle.
On a side note, I used to service golf course equipment. We had a few machines that you had to remove a plug, install a grease Zerk fitting, grease the joint, and then remove the Zerk fitting and reinstall the plug. And we used Food Service Grade grease.
