Grease Gun Usage

Content Tools

After reacting to a mess created by using a grease gun to force out a stuck piston, I would like to tell of a simple remedy. Take a new, or at least a clean, grease gun and remove the cap and plunger. Fill the gun half full with WD-40 while holding the gun upright and pump away. I did this years ago with an old Maytag and it worked fine. Keep a bucket under the work to catch the fluid. Try it, you will like it!
