Hello;

I'm having fun greasing the driveline, steering and bellcrank. I think I've found all but one; I can't seem to see/find the one for parking brake clevis pin. I just went out and took another look; maybe the clevis pin is a lube point but not with a zerk? Do I just spray some white grease? Is that what I use on the linkage for the bellcrank. just above the bellcrank zerk?

I did go buy a new full-sized grease gun and the proper grease; glad I didn't try to use the small one. Should go alot easier next time...

Thank you,

Just hit it a shot with a good aerosol product that has good long term lubricating qualities to it. WD40 or equivalent IMHO is not a preferred lubrication product for this purpose.

Thanks DriVer, and would it be the same thing for the two near the bellcrank, but no zerks, so hit them with lithium grease? Posted a picture but quickly removed it due to too large a size. Using a notebook with no imaging software but here's a direct link:

Right, WD-40 is a cleaner and a penetrate, not recommended as a lubricant, save for short term
