I fitted a remote greasing greasing kit a few months ago.

A week ago, on a grease and inspection job, I noticed that, inevitably I guess, I fitted the plastic pipe incorrectly, and it had snapped off.

So, yesterday, I tried to repair the pipe, and of course, snapped the fitting. I managed to get the stub of the fitting out of the hub, but I've no idea of the thread size I need to replace it.

Help please! 1992 4/4 4str.

I snapped one of the fittings to, and lucky to get it out with the extract set. I then decided to replaced the pair to the swivel type which I purchased from Cain

I strongly advice to get Cain's swivel type fittings. They are smaller,much easier to fit and to connect to the pipe - you just push it in. They are flexible so they permit you to route the pipes in the angle you whish, and they move more or less freely as you turn the steering wheel. Cain has fittings that go to the top of the king pin as well, if you happen to have a grease nipple there too. However, as there is less motion there I do not really think it is needed. But if you decide to change, remember that the thread size is different. Cain will help you.

Keep a good eye on the pipe. I fitted this sort of conversion to my previous Morgan and eventually found one had blocked and as I was greasing it was simply forcing a grease bubble in the pipe - I went back to grovelling underneath as I do with my current car.

Could it be that your damper blade has sheared off the nipple on full lock? remote greasing is not suitable for damper blade cars, at least on the lower fitting.

Agreed. Mine is a damper blade car so wouldn't use it.

With the old fitting, you are correct. With the new swivel fitting it works. My car has damper blades, and yes - the original kit could not be fitted. So I found these swivel fittings, and there is just enough space. I passed this info on to Cain, who integrated it in his kit. There is a picture of it installed on my car on his website.
