thwaites orion

Post #1 by sjh126 » Sat Feb 17, 2018 10:44 pm

Hi again , I have a problem I hope someone can help me with. I have been trying to grease up all the steering grease nipples and free up the steering on my Orion dumper. One of the pivot points hasn't been greased for some time as the nipple wasn't actually letting any grease through!
Anyway i have changed the nipple but i think the join needs stripping down and cleaning up as i still can get grease to go in.
The problem I'm having is that I can't seem to get the thing apart. I have tried heat and a bar through the hole through the what i assume is a bolt maybe!
Can anyone help with some advice, I don't want to bust anything.
its the thing i'm pointing to in the pictures
many thanks Steve

Have you tried twiddling out any old hard grease with a small drill when the nipple is out? sometimes works.
