Did this job about 8 months ago. Examine the U-joint yokes. One side has a
bit deeper curve than the other. That's where the zerk goes. This is hard to
explain in words. A picture is worth a thousand words and I know there are a
couple out there but am not sure where to tell you to look. Maybe some of
the others can help. Anyway, pretty sure you are going to have to do it over
again...   Thankfully, the Hardy Spicers are pretty cheap.....

Come to think of it, I think Just Ed has a picture of this that he sent
me... Try him at Ed at justbrits.com
