rock krawler question
« on: August 01, 2017, 05:53:35 PM »
any grease recommendations for rock krawler joints... I always order their grease 000 rated (Molylube AC 1000 Grease) but I would rather just buy grease around here....any particular ones you guys use that would be just as good?
thanks again
Mark

I can't figure out how they call that grease 000! 000 is equivalent to cooking oil

I have alot of frustrations with grease guns.  Does anyone make a needle that works?  Every needle I buy just blows grease past the connector on the gun.  Does someone make a specific hose for a standard grease gun with just the needle?
