Grease nipples
« on: 20 Apr 2005 at 15:09 »
I would like to replace all the grease nipples on my '26 EW for ones suitable for a modern grease gun. Does anybody know what thread size I should be looking for?

Thank you,

Stuart

Stuart,

For the most part the originals were 1/4-26 (probably CEI.)  So if you can still get 1/4 BSF, you would be very close if not exact.  However the length of thread engagment is so short you could probably get an American 1/4-28 Zerk grease fitting to work as an alternative.

Thanks Doug. 1/4" BSF shouldn't be too difficult to find.
