I only know of two types of grease zerks, the flat concave style that are about 3/16" across. These I've uaually seen on automotive driveshaft universal joints, I don't believe there's any on the raptor.
The other style looks like a nipple and are about 1/4" across. The tip that fits these will have a spring clip inside to snap over the zerk and hold it in place, this might make it seem as though it doesn't fit.
As for grease, disk brake grease has a higher temp tolerance, marine grease is water resistant. I think the last tube I bought was disk brake.

The pointer fitting, does it look like a ballpoint pen? Thats for the concave type zerk, doesn't get alot of use but is usefull to have around.

I be around alot of water but only a few times a year if i go to a track so i would mostly be looking for good water resitance grease. Whats a good brand?

If water has some how goton into where the grease is currently can it be pushed out with new grease or will i need to take apart and repack? I would really like new bushing and seals all way around and repack everythang but i cant afford it. currently im backed up $600 on internal parts that must come first. I guess I have to go out again to find the right fiting for the grease gun I did not see anythang at auto zone last time i went other than what i have. the 2 fittings i have are the one that came with gun with is like a nipple point and the 2nd one i got was a 360degree swivel that has a open end but it wont go over the ball/joint / grease fittings.

Try napa or possibly wal-mart. The pointer thingy is for a needle style zerk for tight clearance issues and are not used on the 660. a standard fitting for the standard zerks should be all you need, should be only a couple bucks.
