Looking for the grease fittings on a 300 G2

This is a new motor for me, 50 hrs and loving it! I’m looking for the grease fittings for the triple guard grease. I see two fittings that I think are them, although they are not the normal zerk type fittings. Do I need to purchase a special Evinrude grease gun? Thanks Jim B

  • If you are describing the large silver fittings in the swivel area of the motor, those are hydraulic steering bleeder valves. Do not turn them

Behind the chrome or silver transom bracket covers. One on each side.

Thanks, does this motor only have 2? Those look to grease the tilt shaft. Any grease fittings for the main turn shaft? Thanks

Main swivel shaft is full of hydraulic oil - no grease needed
