Zerk for 23 A disc

Postby Robert Cool » Fri Oct 02, 2020 11:56 am

Is there any place to get one of the zerks for the 23 A disc? I am missing one on the rear gang.

Remove one zerk and take it to your nearest hardware store or auto parts store.

Your least expensive is to obtain a zerk kit off the internet. Then, needing a zerk, go to the kit.

Are you missing the tube that the zerk sits on? Again same as my first sentence, hardware store.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I remember a post where someone listed the parts they used to make one. Couldn't find it with a search though.
Edit: looked a different way: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=96489&p=760094#p760094

I just looked on Messick's website and they don't even show anything but the zerk itself. I'm guessing it's NLA new.

They’re extended units. You might try JoeB. Last time I needed some, I got them from him. Good feller and knowledgeable.

Turns out the diameter for the zerk in question is roughly 3/8. The walls where it should be feel smooth so I am going to tap it and thread in a 3/8 to 1/8 bushing with new zerk.
