And never heat an installed stubborn grease fitting in order to get it to take grease. I have a friend who was blinded in one eye when the check ball blew out. He was in the transmission business and currently a rated Instructor Pilot.
I never though of that, but heat will also ruin the spring inside the Zerk fitting.
