One shot grease swivels

I changed all the lubes today, tranny, transfer, diffs, engine, and started on the swivels. This the first time I used the one shot grease for the swivels, I usally use 75/90. The grease was the biggest pain in the %^&*$, as it wouldn't go down easy at all even with a pump. The stuff kept coming out of the fill hole as soon as I pumped it. (yes I drained the swivel well). Any tricks you guys can suggest?

Turn the wheel you are working on to full lock outward, leave the swivel drain plug out until you have filled it...the grease wont flow out but it will vent the air.

I put my grease in a pan of hot water before I used it to make it flow better.

Ok, so turn full lock out, and leave the drain plug off, and warm up grease.. I will try it tomorrow. Thanks!

I'm bringing back this thread to ask how often you should load new grease inside the swivel balls ?

I did it yesterday for the first time, one tube in each, didn't drain nothing before.

Interested also. Another (stupid) question: where does the old grease come out when you are putting in new? Does it come out the drain or does it come out the fill hole while you fill?

Typically if you are doing this you are replacing the oil that was in the system. Open drain at bottom and it pours out. Fill with grease on top. SOmetimes using jack stands and turning wheels back and worth makes it move down quicker to get the whole tube in.

I like to put the one shot in with new CVs, goes in easiest if the tie rod/drag link are disconnected and the wheel is turned to full lock.
