Has anyone found the proper grease fitting for the fittings on this unit?
Thanks in advance.

I recommend the fitting that goes over the grease zerk. that can be found at this location. https://locknlube.com/collections/greas ... ng-adapter
I also went with the normal size grease gun so that the mobil grease tube fit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSw0hyP_ojk

I have the HD520 and I ordered the grease fitting in Tonydude's post, but my fittings are not a type of grease fitting I have ever seen. They look like very tall hex sided nuts with a very tiny hole in the end. They are not the typical zerk style.

The adapter Tonydude's instructions link to is here, but that tip is designed for recessed fittings that look like mini volcanos. The top of my fitting are flat. I can't find any grease gun tip that looks like it would remotely connect to these fittings.

What am I missing?

Look at THIS video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsGg9G3P7Ko&t=95s
There is a small tiny hole on top of fitting and you must use this tip https://www.mcmaster.com/2906K92/
That is what I have and also the guy in the video. please watch.

Thanks, Tonydude! That video was perfect. It also answered a bunch of other questions I had pending this tip confusion.

Now that I know the tip I have from your original post is correct, the rest is solvable.

Have a great Thanksgiving!
