Yes.. that’s the one! I bought two off of Amazon for $9.95/ea..these will make greasing your rollers a breeze. Tried all of the others and this tip by far is the best tool for the job. And a small nail or punch to open up any stuck check balls in the grease port.

Best tip for sure! We added this tip to our pneumatic grease gun, adjusted the pressure to about 25- 30psi and went to town. Like mentioned before, poke each check with a nail and a light touch with a countersink makes for a much cleaner application. We greased up 4 pontoons in about 30 minutes.

Almost finished reburbishing 1949 Sophie. Near the last on the list will be greasing the rollers for my first time. Do you use the Z737 fitting for her rollers with the screw off caps?Name:  IMG_6017.JPG

This is what the eary roller fitting looks like when you remove the screw. Alamite Z737 works well with these.

Can some one post a pic of a bearing with a screw stop in it? Would like to know what they look like.

So you pressure pump in the Lubriplate at 25lbs or so till it fills up the insides and just starts to ooze out? I guess I should have paid more attention in Tracks and Rollers:1

Thanks Sno-drifter that does help I’ve never seen one and was curious. And Vintage bike you are correct. At least that is how I grease mine. Others may do it different. I was coached to fill until the water and some of the old grease pushed out.

Any numbers or sizes on that? I KNOW it will be easier to clean up on the bench than when hooked to the pontoons. And there were quite a few that were a real B!tc#.

Here is another photo of the counter bore tool. It has an 80 degree included angle to it. I have tried a single cutter bore and found it to not work as well. Just be careful not to remove any more material than necessary to give a good seal with the for mentioned grease gun fitting. Before greasing poke a nail in the center hole a few times to loosen up the spring loaded check valve. I would not remove the rollers from the grousers to lube them. The bolted up assembly holds the metal shield tight to the roller. If you grease first, the grease may keep the roller from coming up tight against the grouser and then be loose after driving a while.
