I am looking for one of the Tecalemit grease guns and I have found two versions. one looks like it has a tip and the other is like the one Windmill is using. Does anyone know if the one in this photo will fit into the drive shaft?

Thank you!

I don't think the larger one pictured will fit.

just found out why IMZ hasent addressed the awkward angle of the FD joint zerk fitting,its said the u-joint is scheduled to be greased at the same time the FD drive shaft splines are serviced. so if thats done the zerk is easy to get to. makes sense i guess. :cheers: :idea:

Actually that makes perfect sense. So the zerk only means not having to take the UJ joint apart to regrease it. So it isn't meant to be accessible when shaft is installed. :D

I remember my dealer saying once that for the early shafts, there was no point regreasing the UJ because by the time it needed it the splines were worn out so the shaft needed replacing anyway. :D

It is just a compact grease gun with the Lincoln #5803 tip on it.
