    The dealers told me I can't fix the nipple on the canister wheel on the mower where you grease it and I had to buy a $75 front rim and tire on my Walker!!

    There were no threads on the nipple and its a pressed versus threaded which people hated.

    Who sells rims with the canister under $75?????????

    I went to three dealers one was an Exmark dealer.

    All this because I bought a cheap Grease gun and it Fuc*** up my nipple. Who sells good grease guns??????

    you could also thread the hole with a tap and die tool and now screw your new nipple in:)

    Time to find a new dealer. The dealer should have offered to thread the hole and put a fitting in. You have a lazy dealer.

    I have done that a couple times. I think it is an 8/32 tap. 7 is better than 75

    I agree, there was a different solution to your problem then selling you a new wheel!

    Agreed. This is a fifty-cent fix that woulda taken about five minutes to do. Dealer took advantage on this one.
