Operating Instructions

Removing air pockets from grease gun

There are air pockets in the container tube if the tool operates but grease will not eject from spout.. To remove air pockets from the grease gun, follow the outlined procedures..

1.Unscrew the gun head 1 to 1-1/2 turns..

NOTE: Warming the grease aids in removing air pockets.. Stand the gun in an upright position to prevent air pockets from forming in the middle of the cartridge..

2.Pull the plunger handle back and release quickly.. Repeat this step several times..

3.Push the plunger handle back into the container tube and screw the gun head and container tube back together..

4.Press the air vent several times to relieve any air pockets near the top of the container tube.. When all of the air is gone, grease will start to seep out of the air vent valve..

Release all pressure from the

system before attempting to install, service, relocate or perform any maintenance.

Disconnect the grease gun from

the air supply before lubricating.

The piston must be lubricated periodically.. Proper lubrication extends the life of the tool and creates a better sealing action for the piston.. Under heavy usage, the piston should be greased with bearing grease every four months and for light usage only once a year.. To grease the piston, follow the outlined procedures..

1.Disconnect the air grease gun from the air supply..

2.Remove the four slotted screws on the gun head and remove the spring and the piston..

3.Apply a film of bearing grease around the exterior of the rubber skirt of the piston and a thin film of grease on the inside of the cylinder..

4.Install the spring, piston and the four slotted screws..
