sometimes it's down to angle and access - can be tight in side the joint and
it may be that yer greasegun is not seating quite true. If the gun grips
properly, it shouldn't leak.
bloody rubber seal has naffed off in mine. you used to be able to buy a new
head end for the pipe, but not any more, in the local shops, buggrem. I'm
damned if I'm going to buy a new gun just to get a new head for the sod.
on one greasgun head/adapter I machine it to a more streamlined shape for
better access to tight spots.
