I'm having issues getting grease into the some of wet bolts of my trailer. I've tried the usual remedy of lifting the trailer to decrease weight off the axles with no results.

Before I try to remove the wet bolt for inspection/orientation I'd like to try a 10,000 psi grease gun and possibly a Lock N' Lube coupler. Can anyone suggest a quality grease gun?

Is this a new wet bolt kit or is it old? If it is old with old grease you might want to try a propane torch to heat the grease in the wet bolts.

If you jacked right next to the spring hanger you are trying to grease and it didn't work, it is time to pull the bolt and see what is going on. That higher pressure gun will do little to help you. If you do the math, that tiny hole will deliver a psi number much smaller than you imagine.

I have suggested several times on here to cut a figure 8 inside the bushing to give the grease a path. Only feedback I got was criticism.

I wouldn't waste your time with a different grease gun. I had 2 that were giving me problems and went the lol n lube and pneumatic grease gun and they still would not take grease. Pulled both of them, ensured that they would take grease and re-installed them in the correct orientation. All good now. Should have done that in the first place and saved myself some money and aggravation.

JC Whitny used to sell a ram. it was basically device that snapped onto the ZERK fitting. you filled it with oil and wacked it with a hammer. I suspect 10,000 PSI was a medium tap wack it you might well hit 100,000 psi designed to blast the zerk clear Far as I know the company is still in business.
