    you can screw in the fitting. Im almost positive it would be a 1/4. Call exmark, they should know for sure

    Take out the plug and carry it to the hardware store or dealer with you.

    just go buy an assorrtment of them, its good to have them handy as they break and/or get plugged up all the time.

    Agreed! I got a kit in my shop with just about every grease zirk imaginable.

    The 44* and 90* fittings come in real handy for tight spots.
