I bought that kit at HF and had to use the one four from the left plus the flexible extension to get the grease into that fitting.
I saw the "hand mini grease gun (3 ounce cartridge of grease) that fits my 2011 GearUp zerks very nicely" there also but I think it required manual loading.
Seemed to me that all three u-joints on my Yamal took a lot of grease.

found it!

Ok, after trying the needle tip fitting and then grinding the needle tip down without any success, I figured I'd try the mini grease gun from Harbor Freight. The fitting on that was too big as well, as I tried to grind it down I took off the fitting it came with and BINGO it works perfectly!! It turns the tip into the Lincoln Lubrication 5855 Extension Adapter - but at less than 1/2 the cost!!

This is the gun (It was on sale for $9)

You can see the gun here without the fitting.

I am lubed up!!
