    so i got my new v and where the wings pivet there are wholes that boss says have to be greased. not a big deal i thought so i went to the auto parts store to find an attachment that would fit in the whole because there is no zert fitting. I found a pin style fitting that would fit in the whole but it was too small and grease came right back out the whole. Any one know what the heck i am talking about? if you do where can i get one of those things. Also a name would be helpful so i know what the heck it's called.
    Thanks!!!

    Hey Brian I know exactly what you are talking about. I just did mine. It wasn't that bad. I can bring my gun over and grease your plow if ya want. Or I could just stop by. I went to car quest and bought mine. It was like 5bucks I think.

    I can't remember off the top of my head but if you go to the counter ask for a grease fitting so you can grease the center of a boss plow they will know what you are talking about. Thats what I told them when I went there. They sell snow plow stuff too. Nothing much but.

    Heres what your looking for turbo..grease gun thread ..scroll down and you'll see the pics. We call them a "needle adapter", but I'm not positive that's the parts store term for them..most any parts store will have them though.

    What one did you get? I got the one that you have to unscrew about half of the factory assembly to get this one on. I think i was like 5 bucks. Maybe it was more, I can't really remember now. (guy that is going to bug me to because I just thru away the recipt) I know the one that was a quick disconnect was like 15 or something. Did you go to the one in zeeland? I just went to the one in Holland on Reily and butternut.
