Grease zerk sizes

Does anyone know what size the grease zerks are on my Ford chassis.

The reason I ask is my grease gun fits my zerks on the chassis but not my tow dolly zerks, which are 6mm. Thanks!

They sure look like grease zerks. There are 2 on each side of my Stehl tow dolly.

One at each end of a spring?.....unscrew one and see if there's grease up inside of the zerk, then with it out, try to pump a shot of grease thru it...if gun won't fit over zerk, take one with you to a parts house and match up the treads, then while there, try one of their guns to make sure it'll fit the business end...

No springs. But on a closer look, it does appear that the "zerks" are attached to the brake housing. Ooops!
