    pretty common

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hays10 says:

    Never had one fail? Do you even grease bro?

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars runningbear1982 says:

    Get you a damn paper clip and poke around for a little bit. It'll go back to working.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars chris rinz says:

    Nice jeep! Yes common, try switching up to a dark green oil based multi purpose grease may just be my imagination but seems to not force out the check ball in the fitting as much

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Unlimited Fizz says:

    Happens a lot on farm equipment

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe A says:

    Chrysler product, not a surprise

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Maxpowers Powers says:

    It did not fail, it has the rod pushed against it , move that rod while pumping the grease and it will work!!

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matt Traven says:

    you've never seen the ball come out of a grease nipple?!?

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Freedom for our fallen says:

    Yep work on diesels and I bet I’ve had some just never seen them.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars don2deliver says:

    Seen it more often with Chinese fittings.
    Years ago a 2 yo Rwd Monte Carlo had a seriously bad lower ball joint with only 22,000 miles. Greased it before replacement and that exact thing happened.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars nikalus grogan says:

    Ya I constantly see this on ag and construction equipment.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars whatthefuckiswrongwithyou? asshole says:

    in my 25 years I've never seen one fail like that

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Sparks says:

    ZERK FITTINGS ….AHHH YES…MY 55's (2) 2Dr Wagons & 57 2 Dr wagon all had zerks…even the generators had zerks…good old daze…

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars boost331 says:

    Its just a ball and spring. They fail all the time. Most modern vehicles live their entire life without anything being greased, so I suppose with basic commuter cars its not that common.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars vern wehr says:

    Very common when no one greased the vehicle in years.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Huntr Buntr says:

    You have never seen a grease fitting fail ? Wtf.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Coty Luckett says:

    Just Empty Every Pocket

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Samael Sandalphon says:

    Sometimes you can poke the ball around if it's still there, I've only seen em get stuck closed, I kinda suspect the valve is gone.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Addison Herbert says:

    About a 30 cent fix though

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars urbansnipe says:

    Grit in the check valve of that said nipple the ball bearing is unable to seat as the shaft spins it deposits any gritty schmoo ingress back into the grease nipple some brake clean, compressed air and some safety squints is the cockford ollie

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anthony Vera says:

    Never seen a zert fail, oh bless your heart.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vincent Demarinis says:

    Come on get a job it happens all the time

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gordon Brodie says:

    Yep have had them fail. In the US and Aus

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Moore says:

    Seen it many times but usually on heavy equipment but occasionally on car's and vans

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Gingrich says:

    Back in my millwright days, grease fittings flew out of my supply shed. Almost couldn't keep up with them.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Doell says:

    Many times.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jamy Reignier-Ruel says:

    Those always fail in my line of work ! Just have to replace it

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars R Martin says:

    Vehicles not really, heavy equipment yes

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edgar Forsythe says:

    I fix rental equipment happens all the time either they get stuck and won't take Grease or it all just comes out after they take it. Keep up the good work Ray love your channel

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Kapica says:

    That’s the northern life for ya

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Starcloak Starside says:

    Amused. As a mechanic in literally futtbuck nowhere, AK, nearly every vehicle I worked on had at least two grease fittings like this one.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Gowan says:

    I see grease zerk fails often. There's a reason they're usually sold in multi packs.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aiden Ostrander says:

    I've had where they would take grease and shoot across the shop

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dyllin Roberts says:

    As a diesel technician I see that all the time, we have a box of replacements in the shop for when they fail to take grease

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Millis says:

    You need a new one to replace it

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Austin Warren says:

    I have at least 3 grease fittings fail yearly on my tractors. Not uncommon in the slightest

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ur very angry says:

    one nice jeep

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bighappy says:

    Oh yeah, I've seen them fail like that all the time. there is debris that is lodged in the fitting that keeps the check ball from closing completely.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars yerbeilisready says:

    Yeah, industrial mechanic, lots of bearings. Happens a lot..

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adrian C says:

    grease fitting is missing the retaining ball….thats why its back shoots …:D

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ryan S says:

    It’s a Jeep thing

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jose M. Guerrero says:

    There is a tool that you fill with penetrating oil that you attach to the fitting, you then hammer down a plunger and it shoots the oil into the fitting to unstick it, after that you flush out the penetrating fluid with new grease.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sean Andrew says:

    Youve never seen a zerk fitting fail? 😆

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerry Wick says:

    Guy must not work on much older equipment. Seems like half the old tractors and equipment that I work on the check ball will get stuck like this

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rewtuser says:

    It's a Heep thing, you wouldn't understand.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dry Gulched says:

    As a proctologist I see it a helluva lot.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars donnie harness says:

    stuck internal spring seen so many

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SpaceCat72 says:

    It's funny how that works. Whoever thought you could wear out a grease gun…… well I have several times..
    Zerk fittings take a s*** all the time.
    You got to replace them you got to dig out the old grease with a pick you have to use a tool to free up these fittings and you got to carry a whole bunch of these fittings too. it happens

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JCcanU says:

    Oil rig dally , Operator 3 -6 times a year just a stone or clay say good by in the 80s they quit adding zerk fittings to drive shafts and ball joints went to sealed . Feel lucky when you can add Grease

  50. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Landon Anderson says:

    Get a grease cert rejuvenator

  51. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Duramax Daily says:

    That's a new one for me
