Grease guns are used to apply grease to moving mechanical parts.The service life of machines can be increased by properly moving metal parts.Grease is applied with a grease gun at most hardware and auto parts storesIt can be a bit messy but uncomplicated if you have a grease gun.
Step 1: The grease gun head needs to be separated.
Grease guns can be loaded more efficiently if you have access to large containers.Remove the head from the cap.The handle and tube are attached to the head.Remove the two pieces of the grease gun.If the handle on the back of the barrel is not depressed, you risk accidentally shooting grease through the gun during the process.
Step 2: The barrel should be put into a container of grease.
To fill the barrel, hold the open end of it down into the container of grease and slowly pull grease back into it.There are bulk grease containers available at hardware stores and auto parts stores.This might be a good option for a serious mechanic.
Step 3: The grease should be removed from the barrel.
Lift the barrel out of the container of grease when the plunger rod is withdrawn.Grease can cling to the barrel and be broken by rotating it.There is excess grease at the end of the barrel.
Step 4: Attach the grease gun’s barrel to its head.
Grease guns will work in different ways.It might be a matter of the end cap being screwed on.Turn until the joint is fully seated.
Step 5: The grease needs to be tested.
Press on the handle of the rod and squeeze the gun to release the grease.Excess grease can be wiped from the body of the grease gun.To clean a gun, use a cloth or rag.
Step 6: Remove the cap.
The grease itself, housed in a similarly-sized and shaped housing, is one of the basic parts of a Cartridge-loader.The only way to remove the cap is to turn the nozzle clockwise and thencounterclockwise.Use elbow grease if it is screwed on tight.
Step 7: Pull back on the handle.
You should see a rod on the end of the barrel that is used to push the grease out.Pull until the rod is out of the barrel.Pull back the grease gun’s lever to make the discharge automatic.Depending on how much gunk is built up on the inside, it may come out all or part of the time.The rod needs to be secured before you can remove it.
Step 8: The rod needs to be secured and the cartridge removed.
On most grease guns, you should be able to put the rod into a slot in the barrel so that it can’t move forward.On some grease guns, a release tab is provided on the end of the barrel to allow the piston rod to move back and forth.You can discard the empty cartridge when you get the rod in place.
Step 9: The grease should be prepared for loading.
At hardware and auto parts stores, there are Cartridges.The typical sizes are 14 ounces.There are 414 and 16 ounces.There are 473 liters of the Cartridges.It’s a good idea to clean the gun a bit before you load it.The barrel should be wiped with a cloth or rag.Excess grease may have leaked out during the removal of the spent grease cartridge.Grease can flow out normally if the plastic cap is removed from one end of the new cartridge.A good way to get grease to settle on the right side is to store it upside down.If it hasn’t been stored upside down, shaking it hard once or twice toward the cap can help to settle it in the direction you want.
Step 10: The barrel has a cartridges in it.
The plastic cap should be on the end of the cartridge.The end of the barrel seals if you push it fully in.The metal seal needs to be removed.The metal seal should be removed.
Step 11: Attach the barrel to the grease gun.
It’s best to screw it on the part way.While simultaneously pumping the handle of the grease gun nozzle, release the piston rod from the retracted position and push it into the barrel.It helps to get the grease started by working air through the mechanism.When grease appears at the nozzle, stop.Continue working on the head and barrel.Push on the rod to make sure it’s fully engaged.Make sure grease is being delivered by pumping the handle.
