LX1416 GREASE INJECTOR NEEDLE, 18 GAUGE 1 1/2" LONG STAINLESS W/ COVER
We recommend using this needle to add grease to your new bearings before you install them on the vehicle to ensure the bearing is fully packed for longer life and durability. We find the triple sealed bearings can be very hard to align and grease once installed and some don't take grease at all if the bearing port at the top isn't aligned properly with the flange zerk. Taking the extra minute to pre-grease each bearing while doing your rebuild is extra security to know you won't be doing it again any time soon.
To use the needle, attach to your hand pump grease gun via the zerk on the needle, insert the need into the small pinhole at the top race of the bearing which you may need to spin to get the needle in further, add 3-4 pumps of grease and then spin the race to distribute the grease in the bearing.
The needle is made from stainless steel and comes with a protective cover.
