Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2012: Putting in rear axle grease

I have to put more grease, as supplied by the English Model T Ford Register, into the rear axle diff housing and I am told it is a difficult procedure as the grease is so thick. Does anyone have any tips to make it easy?

You can use something like a turkey baster. Fill it with grease and then squeeze the bulb to fill. They also make pumps to fit to the container of grease. You can also use a short plastic hose with a funnel, but it is quite messy that way.

Grease or heavy oil? Set the container in the sun or heat it GENTLY.

Fluid grease suction -type gun. Load the barrel and push in slowly to fill. Pull on handle for suction to drain heavy 600W oil in the rear end.

Get these suction guns at auto parts shops, or on-line, $10-$25.

I found this cheap and easy. The tubing was less that a dollar.

Thanks guys for the information, we use the suction pump tools on our steam railway locos, should have thought of that!
