Grease nipple angled

Post by Stuart » Sat Sep 04, 2010 1:47 pm

I'm looking to put an angled grease nipple in the position over the gear change lever. My thread gauge marked 7/32, 3/16, 24 fits it the best but can't find any angled nipples that have that thread.
Anyone have a sorce for these? Have I got the size right? It's not a Bullet box but from an Enfield twin.

When in doubt try ebay :)!! Can't get it there I'd really say it's a hard to get item Stuart.

I'll see if I can find my catalogue from a leading supplier of engineering parts and have a look mate, sure there would be somewhere that sells them.

Don't worry mate. I've had to section out part of the battery braket above and this allowed me to get the mini grease gun I had right onto the nipple. I did look on ebay and found nothing with quite the right thread.
