greasing the RER

got the new clutch disk in, the blade sharpened and now started greasing the fittings in the deck, wheels.. Whats odd is that even after I clan the zerk fittings and even push in the spring loaded ball to be sure the fitting are not frozen, when I grease em , all the grease comes out around the zerk and nothing seems to be going in .. hmmm. Are there such things are metric vs standard tips on the grease guns or something? It seems to snap on nice and tight..

ok pulled off a few and saw that the grease was getting thru fine... Guess I was pumping too much and the unit has few hours so the bearings were pretty packed with grease already.. Thanks all
In the future,think as if it were your car/truck,and how offen it is greased & how much.I would guess once a year is fine,although I do ck grease more offen myself.Good thinking here is, better to not need it rather than never greasing.
