Grease zerk

There's a grease zerk on my '06 F450 Power Stroke on below the pitman arm. Unfortunately, the steering rod (or something) is 1/2" in front of the grease fitting and there's no way you're getting a grease gun on that thing. Is this zerk screwed in or pressed in? I'm thinking of removing it and installing a 90 degree zerk for easy access.

It's screwed in. The ones I've seen have a 90º fitting.

Re: Grease zerk

Thanks, I replaced it w/ a 90 but it doesn't fit tight & won't completely tighten in. I tried both metric & standard. Looks like someone else had messed w/ it before. Should I wrap the 90 threads w/ some pipe tape?

Re: Grease zerk

That might work. I've at times used a punch and mde enough of a dent in the old threads to let the fitting tighten up. It won't leak grease if you're careful with it. The tape may work too.
