Hi

I think you might be right - I had not thought about the nipple being damaged before you mentioned it.

There are two like this.

Cheers

Peter

Isn't it amazing how a photo clears up any confusion , Once forum members are able to see exactly what some one is talking about .

I do hope some others on here take note

Have to agree 100%, its damaged. I'll have a dig in my box and see if I can get a picture of how it should be.

It is probably angled for easy access but doesnt mean you have to replace it with the same if you dont have one. Swap one from somewhere else so you can get some grease in it until you can get a new one.

Hope this helps. The broken off part appears removable on these.

Damn early birds

If I where you red, Buy a Big box of grease nipples (you probably already have them) And just carry it round. When I first started driving the JCB 531 I replaced all the Awquard greasenipples with ones that where angled/easier to get at and harder to damage/not going to be damaged.

Worth remembering that an awful lot of older kit uses BSP threaded nipples rather than metric.
