Have read many horror stories about the grease zerk on the front of the drive shaft on the 1025R & 2025R. Had my 2025R Gen 2 on drive doing fluid level checks and greasing and lubing things as well as checking air filters. Got to the front and could actually see the zerk through those little holes. No way was the clip on fitting going to make it through those holes so changed to a standard end. With a bit of finagling it snapped right on and I was able to grease that front u-joint. Gosh I thought that was not near as bad as I have read it would be. Just lucky I guess! Then I tried to pull the fitting off the zerk. No matter how hard I pulled and pried not coming off. I thought you have got to be kidding me! Really??? What the hell! Finally had to unscrew the hose from the grease gun then the hose from the fitting. Reached up with needle nose vice grips and was finally able get the fitting to release from the zerk. But that dammed zerk was greased! Always something!
