Default Re: Grease Nipple Sizes

komatsu use mostly 10 mill with 1mill pitch, Hitachi use 10 mill with a .9 pitch it seems Volvo nipples are 10 x .9 too. Uk imperal were and cat are 1/8 bsp with a larger 1/4 bsp available too. I think you can fit the 10 mill 1mill pitch into the 1/8 thread but not other way around. Volvo charge 2.90 for the 10 x .9 nipples Hitachi did me 300 for .49p each There is the button head and the giant button head, the giant is or was often found on the grese lubed rollers where as the smaller is and can still be found on track adjuster cylinders etc. There are various anged varieties too and these usually have a screw in 6 or 5 mill baby nipple as Rob states.

Just realised where I have come across the button head prior to having the Atlas ducks. Was on the Track Marshall dozer in Yorkshire when I was a pup.

Thanks for all your help guys and I agree that a picture makes all the difference

My excavator is a second hand Hitachi EX22 from 2004 so I guess the threads would be metric.

Cheers

Peter

Words are often misunderstood . As you saw here ,when the word bigger was used ,most thought the same thing ,button head fitting .

Add one photo ,and everyone can see ,and offer can better informed advise .
