    Smile grease nipple/zerk

    Slowly but surely(?) reassembling our TR3, but I lack a nipple on the sliding drive shaft. The catalogue number is not the same as the U-joint.
    Can you point me to a source?

    We probably lack a lot of other things too, including common sense.

    There is a possibility of actually starting the engine this year and turned the car round in hope that there will be an exhaust gas to vent outside. It is getting close!

    Pretty common Zerk I would think. I haven't replaed that particular (hard to get to) one but I have replaced others using fitings from the Harbor Freight assortment:

    thank you. I am trying to avoid cross border shopping as the shipping castigates (that should read "costs are") ridiculous... but I will keep in mind. Only retailer nearby is NAPA who do not have a similar assortment. I will have to go through the original parts list again and see if the number crops up somewhere else.

    You can get a bubble pack of those fittings at any auto parts store in the US. Can't imagine it would be any different in Canada.

    I checked with NAPA locally: only one-of-a-kind packs, no mixes. have not tried Canadian Tyre yet.

    I went through the TR3 parts catalogue looking for nipples, snd found about ten . One had the same part number as the one I need (1/8 inch with 90 Degree fitting) so that is what I shall seek. Surprising variety!

    Hi Dr Mike,

    I got my mixed pack from Princess Auto if you have one nearbye. Canadian Tire for sure has single packs but I don't think I've seen a mixed pack.

    Cheers
