Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Genoa fuling gear - Grease Nipple - Zerk Fittings
I was going to ask , if putting a lower and a higher hole would be a good way to go. I think it makes sense. What type or weight of grease should be used? Thanks, Pat

I use hex head nylon bolts instead of stainless no corrosion with the aluminum.
When i tapped the holes i put a lot of grease on the drill bit and the tap and cleaned it frequently and re freased. The metal is not very thick. I drilled one hole low and the other high on each gearbox. I insert the grease with the autoprop adapter. I believe it is 5 mm. i put the grease in the lower hole and wait till it comes out clean on the highter one.
