It is amazing how a greasy gun can get loaded, especially when it has been left open for sometime. This is usually when most people have finished their greasy jobs or are leaving them out for someone else to use. You should always ensure that your gun is loaded before you start to use it, but what if it has already been left open? How to load a grease gun?
In this last step, you will need to load your grease gun with some air. First you should fill the gun with some air by squeezing the trigger. This helps remove any dust or other gunk that may be inside of it. Once you have successfully managed to get all the dust out of it, you can now load it. In order to do this, you should first open the air chamber on the end of the tube.
Next, you need to find the old grease gun nozzle. It should be on the bottom side of the cylinder, next to the air chamber. Look for a small hole in it. You will know that it is not for refilling or loading once you see a small round hole. You will need to take this hole and screw it into the new greasing port on the end of the gun’s tube.
To finish your job, you should also refill the gun’s chamber with some old grease gun fluid. Before you do this, however, you should turn off your machinery. After all, you do not want to run the risk of discharging the old gun fluid into the air when you attempt to complete this task. There are many different types of guns, including hand held machinery, that use the same method when loading a shell holder or a shell ejection port; so you should read up on the specific type that you are using so that you do not go wrong.
To load the gun, you should first place a cup or pan of low-pressure milk and some cotton balls in the front part of your grease gun’s nozzle. Place the nozzle so that the tip of it points to the middle of the area you wish to work on. Load the gun with some fluid and pull the trigger. You should feel a great amount of pressure being released at the same time.
Another important thing you should do before you start to load grease gun fluid is to turn off your machinery. Then, you need to make sure that all moving parts of your machinery are unplugged. When your moving parts are unplugged, you can pour the oil into the port in such a way as to avoid splashing onto any other moving parts of the machinery. If you do not follow this, your machinery will be flooded with oil as you try to load it up.
After you have finished pouring the oil into your grease gun’s port, you should insert the loaded cartridge into it. The cartridge should be inserted straight into the gun’s feed tube. Make sure that the bottom of the cartridge faces out towards the barrel. Then, you should turn the spring cap counterclockwise and you should pull the spring out. Next, you should insert the threaded end of the barrel into the threaded hole located in the upper part of the feed tube.
Then, you should turn the handle counterclockwise, and you should pull the handle until you hear a click. The popped sounds that you hear are caused by the trapped air that was released when you placed the grease gun’s handle into the correctly. When you release the handle, trapped air will be released along with the lubricant. Finally, you should wipe the entire handle with a soft cloth in order to remove the excess oil. By using these simple steps, you should notice that your newly refilled grease cartridge is working perfectly.
