Default Grease fittings

I am putting together 10 zerk/grease fitting kits for M380/450 ball joints. This simple modification will allow for the greasing of upper and lower ball joints. A vast improvement over stock!

The kit will include 4 zerk fittings, a #3 stub drill, 1/4-28 tap, tap handle, nitrile gloves and instructions.

$29.95 each plus shipping

Available to everyone except Randy!

Ryan,

I'll take a kit and have Parliament install them...if we get that far...but Ill still like to have a kit whatever happens.

Offering this to Randy is like buying a pyromaniac a Zippo for Christmas.

FYI - the PO of my coach installed a remote system since those fittings are hard to get to...you may/may not want to do the same thing while you're having a kit installed (grease fittings are located in first bay on each side).

I don't have a BMC, but I do love the genius of others!

Yes I was thinking the concept would be universal...I wish I had thought of it for my FC!

Default New item

I have put together a small grease kit that includes a top quality grease needle, XL nitrile gloves and instructions for grease the ball joints without the zerk fitting modification installed. Very basic and well worth the effort for sure.

The kit is $12.50 plus shipping. Brake out your quarters!

I will have 5 kits available at the Parliament rally on Saturday 01/23/2016 for those interested?

FWIW, all of the current ball joint boot replacement kits include this grease needle

Additional kits will be available for shipping next week
