Trunnion Grease Nipples

Does anyone know the size and thread for the above? (For 1994 car). I want to replace the current straight ones with right angle ones to make access easier for a grease gun for lubrication.

I thought they were supposed to be lubricated with EP90?

Yes, I am aware EP90 is used but I inject this utilising a grease gun.

I used Redline heavy duty shock proof oil in mine on the trials car - well over a decade of use so far, with big horrible chunky 175/80.14 tyres out on 1" spacers and driven off-road a lot.

For the grease gun recommendation i use a SH wanner hand held. You should be able to get one for less tan £20. They work well with oil and are old and nicely made.

i have two, one for grease and one for oil
