There is an old photo floating around of a roadster coming of the production line - I had a quick look and they look shiny so I would suggest that they seem to be the natural color - not painted.

Hope this helps

Cheers

Yes there is an adapter available for what is pictured (by 1930) as a Zerk fitting!

A little history

If you mention grease nipples (thats what we tend to call then down under - they are rightly refered to as a "Lubrication Nipple" as per the orginal patent by Zerk (Filed 1922 - Patedted 1927)) to an American he probably won't know what you are talking about. This is because Americans refer to them as a "Zerk fitting", or a "Zerk", or if he is an older American he might call it an "Alemite fitting". The name "Alemite fitting" comes from the fact that the first company to manufacture the grease nipple was the Alemite Die Casting and Manufacturing Company in Chicago. The term "Zerk" comes from the name of the inventor of the grease nipple, Oscar Ulysses Zerk.
Mr. Zerk was an interesting character. He was a prolific inventor and was something of an unrecognized engineering genius. As well as inventing the grease nipple, by the time of his death in 1968 Zerk had over 300 patents to his name

Oscar Zerk was born May 16, 1878, in Vienna, the son of Flora and Bernard Zerk, a prominent textile manufacturer in the old Austro-Hungarian Empire. Zerk showed an early interest in engineering and had a deep facination with cars, which were a novelty at the time. After completing work on his engine and wheel designs in Austria and in England he decided to try his luck further abroad and set sail for the United States on the Lusitania in 1907. During the long journey across the Atlantic Zerk started to ponder the then current problems with lubrication, and it was on this trip that he came up with the idea of the grease nipple. On his arrival in New York he patented the idea, and then approached Alemite, who specialised in lubrication, and went into partnership with them. The basic design of the Zerk grease nipple has not changed since 1907.


The basic internal design hasn't changed except for outside function for adapters/lubricators (grease guns) - if I remember correctly the change was an evolutionary one and the patent office shows alot of Filings in the lubricators during the late 20's early 30' (From a Davis, Gray and et al). I could blab on for hours I could tighten up the dates if you like

I hope this helps

I will probably have to replace all mine as I am only new to the Ply's - Have several zerk fittings and adaptors from other rebuilds and restores it would be good to have originals adn a full set.

Thank you - yes it was the one of ebay - by chance it just happened to be sitting around the corner from my mates place up there in Jimboomba - havent even seen it except for a pile of pics a mate took of it and what was on ebay frustrating but I am sure will get to look at it all over, under and inside the forthcoming years - Do you know if we can track history on these girls through the RTA or VicRoads?

Cheers

Hi all - have just put a deposit on a 29 Ply hope to pick it up the end of the week everything being equal - I pretty sure she was a roadster that had been converted to a Ute (pickup) - got it out of Queensland Australia - then will get it home to Geelong in Victoria and start assessing where to start - First question I need to answer do I take it back to a roadster or rebuild as it is? It is a rather extensive project - I can only make out some of the VIN number medallion that is located to the left side of the dash (as she is a right hand drive) - The code I have so far is GP-?20-C - the motor number is U5287. I hope this make sense

I know I will be asking a lot of questions in the future - so thanks in advance.

Cheers


Wayne
