Now that I have good drawings, piece of cake, although I did grab some 
bad material and spent quite a bit of time chiseling the packed up tool 
out, and used a good cup of ButterCutt keeping it clean.  So thats made 
and partially assembled.

Being out in the hinterlands of WV, nobody stocks metric bolts deep 
enough to keep me in the right bolts. so I now have about 6 to bite off 
8 to 10mm of, and grind away the cut end until it fits the threads 
again. By then my back said it was quitting time, so thats tomorrows 

Then I should have mounted it about 2mm left as I don't have room to put 
a grease fitting in the nut unless its a straight 1/4-28, but I don't 
think even that will allow a gun nozzle's access.

And everytime I look up lube recommendations I get a different story.  
This writer for so-and-so wants 10w non-detergent, the next guy wants a 
high grade 10w-40 detergent, and the third guy wants white lithium 

Cheap, rolled C7 grade screw, what would you folks put in it at about one 
gun pump a month?

Thanks everybody.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
