  • Torque these fixing bolts to the manufacturer's specifications

TURRET TIP Busting the Myth as to Overgreasing!

If your shaft is fitted with grease nipples they are there to be used and we don't believe you can grease them too much.

Universal joints should be filled till grease purges out all 4 seals. Also check slip section for grease nipples and pump cavity full. In older types you’ll need to cover the relief hole in cap at end of yoke so grease fills cavity completely and is seen coming through dustcap at opposite end.
