OK, back to the E-Z lube.
We had just finished "topping off the grease" with a few pumps per side until the old grease started coming out. Lowered the trailer. Then I read the Dexter Service Manual.
"1. Remove the rubber plug from the end of the grease cap.
2. Place a standard grease gun onto the grease fitting located in the end of the spindle. Make sure the grease gun nozzle is fully engaged on the fitting.
3. Pump grease into the fitting. The old displaced grease will begin to flow back out the cap around the grease gun nozzle.
4. When the new clean grease is observed, remove the grease gun, wipe off any excess, and replace the rubber plug in the cap.
5. Rotate hub or drumb while adding grease."
Put the trailer up again and repeated #4. Put an old maragine tub
below for the old black grease to fall
into. Used some chopsticks to help it along. Then when we saw the nice pink Mystic JT-6 Hi Temp Grease we use start to show up we stopped.
My goodness. We used nearly a whole tube of Mystic.
Went to town to look for new rubber plugs (85-1) for spares. Both auto shops were out of stock.
It was a beautiful day to be out raising and lowering the trailer. The ice is almost out of the lake.
