well it didn't work. I'm trying to grease the fitting from the transfer output yoke and the rear diff input yoke its the same shaft. That's a real tight fit. Looks like you have the fitting rotated to the top in order to get the good angle.

My Top: Another topic my top is taking a beating from the sun and has faded. Has anyone stained or die there canvas top? Any ideas of a chemicals mix or brand? I ordered a die from amazon don't know how that would turn out. Ill post and update.

As far as the top goes contact Dave Pizziferatto on here. He makes and sells canvas tops so he will know exactly what to use on them. Canvak is the first thing that comes to mind.
On the shaft it is pretty much a straight line so top or bottom is going to be the same angle. If using the pointed tip fitting you should not not be having any problems. I have never had any issues greasing mine with that fitting no matter where it was pointed. The only thing I can think of is maybe the fitting is pointed towards the differentials? If it is then the u-joints were installed backwards. The only way to fix that is to press them out and back in the right way.

Thanks Rick I used that tip but the small ball bearing in the fitting didn’t accept the grease maybe I should change that grease fitting I’ll give a try. Thanks for the contact on dMaterial dying let me reach out.

Did you push the ball in on the fitting with the tip of the gun fitting? You need to depress the ball and hold that tip in the hole.

If you figure something on the dye, let us know, I have a side curtain that I need to dye, I want to brush on with foam brush, read it could be done with Rit dye. I'm going to buy dark green and dark brown and mix it to liking, can't do the submersion method because it has a red cross on it.
