A simple query about lube points

This may be a naive question, but I'm wondering:

My Yamaha ourboard and a few other items on board have lube points that are sorta like Zerk fittings but are cast into the units and lack the bulb on the Zerk. What is the appropriate tool for injecting grease into them? My standard grease gun coupling does not seal at all, and it requires more pressure than easily achieved with a tube and nozzle.

What do you all use?

Jim

It's called a needle adapter.

Jim, I find a quicksilver(Merc) grease gun type thing that screws onto their ant icorrosion grease tube works. but leaks a bit. It has a concave nylon thingie on the end that seals on zerk fittings and sort of seals on flat surfaces etc.
