I was trying to grease one of the rear height adjusters on my Toro and broke the zerk fitting off :banghead3 At least I broke it off AFTER I greased it!

Will it be okay to use in the meantime, until I can get another adjuster? I'll find something to plug-up where the zerk was.

Bryan Was it a drive-in zerk or was it threaded?

That's what happened to me, my grease gun locked on and wouldn't let go! I'm not sure whether its a drive-in one or screw-in. I think its a drive-in, because the base of it isn't hex shaped, like most of the screw-in ones I've seen.

You may be able to get it out and save a little money by changing just the zerk.

An easy-out should work if it's threaded. If all else fails, a new adjuster is only $15.00

I would either drill out and retap as stated above, or look for a used piece that you can use, or buy new, or leave it alone and take apart and grease. I'm not sure if you will be able to get the grease in all the right places by taking it apart. Good luck
