    What grease gun to get?

    The previous owner has put greasable joints in the prop shaft. I need a grease gun and now nothing about grease guns. Will one from fleabay or supercheap autobarn do?
    What size? 250ml or 500ml or what.
    Do I keep adding grease until clean grease comes out of the bearing?

    Thanks

    I got a cheap one from supercheap. Does the job. Doesn't matter bout the size, it would just mean you need to refill the gun more often

    the which grease gun is a little less important than the attachments it comes with.

    no, dont greae them until grease comes out. Just add one shot of grease every month or 2000-2500 km or so.

    if you notice grease only weeping past one of the seals you then need to belt the yoke of the UJ in a few different directions to change the path of resistance to the grease. in a perfect world you would put your one shot of grease in, go for the monthly 50 K check out drive and when you climbed under you would notice a slight dribble of grease from each arm of the UJ.

    I have this one. It has the ability to deliver either high volume or high pressure, by shifting a bar above the handle. It's a handy feature.
