    I think most are high pressure nowadays. Similar to aircraft flush high pressure fittings. If they have any, you will need to scrape off some road shit and find a flush circular fitting. You will also need a high pressure lube fitting if they have any. Looks like a needle for a lube gun. When you go to pump it in, make sure you have it square or you will get about 20 psi of lube all over your face and eyes.

    20 years experience working on Military fighters with that type fitting. (if the T/A has them)

    I've been told none from the factory. Many aftermarket parts have Zerk fittings.

    Weapons test and evaluation. That would be either the 422 at Nellis or the 46 AMXS at Eglin. I am an IMIS engineer. Sound familiar?

    Okay, you're on F-18s then. AME/ SAME is the software for those. One of the guys up here in Navy AME testing used to work there. Fong something. Can't remember his last name.
