The grease fitting is called a "Zerk".

Subject: [python] Rod end bearings on Pythons 

Hi all 

My ongoing trike project although based on Ed's red trike has rod end 
bearings as used by 25hz and others. 

Can anyone tell me ? 

How do you grip them without damaging them to tighten up the nuts 
clamping them to the frame ? 

Do I need washers on the outside at the bolt head and lock nut ? only 
with the washers I think there is insufficient thread for the lock nut 
to work ? 

What is the adaptor called that fits to a grease gun so they can be 
greased ? 

regards Paul
