Lightbulb Video Ways to deal with stubborn zerk fittings

I constantly have trouble with my zerk fittings, so I figured I'd make a video since all the videos on youtube are just marketing tools you buy to "fix" them.

Basically all I'm doing is loosening the bolts to the A arms, heating the joints up to thin the grease, then shooting more into them.

The video shows the trials and tribulations of completely my task.

I was recommended heating up the joint By Dez and it did help a ton. Shout out

I was beyond frustrated while making this video because of the amount of grease I waste every time I try to service the joints. So forgive my unenthusiastic tone of voice

That was a good video. But at 9.5 minutes long, there was 8 minutes watching the heat gun, hahah. Why not prop the heat gun to aim towards the joint? Then do something else while it heats up. LOL, just messing with you.

Lol. I tried doing some time management with it. I kept turning camera off for different parts All done it took 30 minutes to do 3 joints. I'm still a novice at making videos and it doesn't help that my train of thought is more like a pack of squirrels running in all directions when the dog is let loose
