ajax grease gun

Hello.

Can somebody post a few pictures of the grease/oil gun that came with the Ajax's ( models 3, 4 or 5 ). I would like to try and track one down as I am having difficulty lubricating the rear roll through the holes as the nozzles on the two I have won't fit.

Thanks

Point of order!

Ransomes recommend lubricating with 30 or 50 grade oil  - so its an oil gun! . The most usual one is made by Tecalamit. Best source is boot fairs and autojumbles.

Grease tends to dry out and block the passageways leading to seized rollers.

I use a Abnox Wanner 31960 on my Certes it works a treat with Castrol EP90 oil on the bearings.

That's the Rolls Royce of oil

That's the Rolls Royce of oil guns. Coincidentally another forum contributor and I have recently been corresponding about Wanner grease guns. I've had my original one since the 1960s . I cant remember what I paid for it then but I see they are now around £70, but I recently picked up two at a jumble for less than £10 each..

As an oil gun it's also very useful for oiling the trunnions on a Triumph Herald car!

Not a lot of people know that

Not a lot of people know that they don't like grease and for the same reasons as Ransomes rear rollers - they seize up . Back in the day it was for my Mum's Herald that  I acquired my first Wanner - in the 1960s.

One of my Ajax mowers came with what I thought was a grease gun but was in fact filled with oil.Having just looked at the Ajax operators manual it makes reference to an “oil gun” and “oil gun nipples”.
