What About Those Drive In Grease Zerks?

The main gear shaft grease zerk, sticks out side of case behind tire, popped out of my machine last year. Itís a drive in type 5/16 according to the calipers. Will a replacement stay put with these type, should I tap it and use a threaded type? Or would it stay put with a tack of MIG weld easier and better?

I tried that already but the threaded zero didnít much want to chop new threads. What is the thread count on a 5/16 zerk anyways?

are you sure it's a 5/16? most common zerk sizes are 1/4 x 24, 3/8 fine or metric 6mm and 8mm . a few are 1/8 npt . 8mm is very close to what you think is 5/16,

i think you need to try and get a size of the hole it goes in first then find a zerk that can be tapped then installed

Hole is right around 5/16and thatís depressed acout 3/16. I looked up the drill size and it comes up to some weird Ltr or Ltl size whatever tat means. Iím takin the easy way out and just getting another drive on. If it sucks Iíll go to tapping then.
Those style zeros plain suck.! This is he only machine of any sort I ever saw them on and I can see why. The good thing about this is that with 2 tiny tacks Of Mig wire it will stay put if it doesnít want to stay put yet is easy and simple to access for a redo.

if you have a tap chart it will give a decimal. letter or number drill size for the thread, when used it sure makes tapping a thread a simple easy task.

I just finished a set of Ariens zerks (07012600).

They were 1/4-28 threads which takes a #3 (or 7/32") bit.

...not to be confused with 1/4-20 which takes a #7 bit.
