    I tryed that but it was to hard to squeeze the handle of the gun so I just figured the grease was to thick and that you had to use a certain type.
    Thanks I will try again.

    Try rotating the bolts. Sometimes the holes in the bolts line up weird and the grease can't get out of the holes.

    You can also try loosining the nut a little and pumpin g the grease in then tighting the nut agian.
