I have 3 grease guns and i can grease car, heavy equipment and what ever there is but not my 660 or my Buddy's. Do i need a special connect or do i need to buy all new fittings?

I have no trouble with my grease fittings. All my guns work fine.

Your problem is not the grease gun. It is hard to get grease in and then remove the gun because the grease is not properly getting into the joint and is held on by the back-pressure. This happens every once and a while particularily on the A-arms . Loosen the mount nuts and turn the thru-bolts a few rotations and your problems will be solved. If you have'nt lubed in a while you may need to remove the mount bolts completely and clean them.....

for reference-if you don't know already..don't put marine grease in parts that rotate fast or cause a certain amount of friction..like the carrier bearing..it will destroy your bearings...marine grease hardens when it is heated continuely. I'm guessing it would be ok to use on these parts.

What are you supposed to grease with? Lithium grease right?

I believe thats what is recommended, a general purpose grease is ok for light duty .

Get the Lincoln battery powered, absolutley love it. Of course a little overkill for 8 grease zerts on the raptor but if you have any heavy equipment and do a lot of greasing definetly get it :thumbsup:
