Default Serk fittings

I take my 93 SE 4WD into the Nissan dealer today for a couple of small items and the mechanic says there are nine capped off holes where a zerk fitting would go. The dealer does not have these in his catalog so an outside vendor seems to be in order. Is there a specific size for this application and would all nine be the same size or do they make it hard and vary depending on the application. Lastly does anyone have a source for these parts. ORielly's just had a blank stare which kind of surprised me.

They're either M6 or M8. Also, they come straight out, at a 45* or a 90*. Let me ask you this, by "there are nine capped off holes" do you mean there's a bolt plugging the already threaded hole, or no threaded hole?

Probably a bolt in a threaded hole. That's how I've seen them before. You may have to call it a grease fitting for the guy at the parts store lol.

Kinda surprised you? Lol

Anyways here ya go. When you figure out which ones you need let me know. I'm surprised no one else around you has any.

NAPA is usually a good source for this type stuff. And, by the way, it is a Zerk fitting with a "Z" instead of an "S".

should be the M6 fitting. just remove one of the bolts and take it in the store with you. and i have seen those fittings at lowes and walmart too. just depends on the local market.

I was hoping somebody would mention that they are Zerk fittings and I drive by 5 auto parts stores because I've always liked Napa's parts and know how. But unfortunately my local Napa just changed ownership and they have a Haitian women that can't speak English and tried 4 times to get a fuel filter for my truck until I got pissed and left. They hired 2 Spanish guys that are maybe 18 years old and can't find parts either. So that leaves 1 guy that I've known for 18 years and I'll stand in his line even if there are 4 people in front of me but the manager always sends me to one of the people that can't find my parts so I leave... Pretty Sad! I never understood the non serviceable parts thing,I want to grease my front end parts at every oil change.

The reason for the "non-serviceable" thing is that it cuts a lot of machining operations out of the production and therefore cost less to manufacture.
