Have you seen the new Country Crotch "I can't believe it's no rudder grease"!

A big yes on the rag. When I shot grease into the fittings and turned the wheel, grease shot back out of one of the fittings.

The aluminum tube with the fitting on it does not have a ball in it that acts as a check valve like most zerk fittings and it will spew grease out, because if it was full of grease, it would lock up the steering cable. Someone I knew, replaced the zerk fitting, thinking it was bad, filled up the tube, put everything back together, went to the lake and the steering wheel would not turn and had to go back home and wait for a new tube from the dealer, because he couldn't find the old fitting he threw away. All he had to do was remove the fitting and the excess grease would have squirted out and allowed the steering to work, then he could have put in a new open zerk fitting. 2 pumps of grease is all that is needed.
