Is the SH wanner fitted with an adjustable diameter nozzle to fit various sized grease nipples? My current gun (which I use for oiling the trunnions) was a small cheap plastic one I got many years ago and it’s about knackered. So looking for a replacement.

I bought a special trunnion oiling gun from Rimmer:

A regular grease gun makes a real mess of the job. The seal isn't made for oil, and it will leak past it.

not sure of the size, the 2 I have fit "standard" nipples, in my case uprights on a Lotus Elan and the prop shaft.

the SH meant second hand. They are just "Wanner"
