What fitting, is it button head or similar ?

Lever gun can produce several thousand psi, volume or bucket pump, 500 psi per Alemite's specifications, see the links below, but look at their lever guns too, much higher psi, there is a relief valve, see the photo. If these are the same kind of roller like the old caterpillar ones, there is a concern about rupturing seals.

Typically, of that era, these volume or bucket pumps were used and track roller grease was used, 00 or 0, one of those NLGI grades would be similar, stringy, tacky lube, similar to chainsaw bar oil consistency.

Tried to contact you this spring! Recently purchased a '65 HD3 Allis and had some questions. Forgot most of the questions:) One question was what type of grease should be used in the Alemite tank for the HD3 Allis. Need to lubricate the rollers soon. Another question is do the button head fittings come in different sizes? Any and all advice is appreciated!

Alemite shows standard and giant sizes, not sure what variants there may be on the older track rollers and or similar applications that Allis may have had.

I'm going under the assumption that if Allis track rollers were similar and called for the same lubrication as the old style caterpillar rollers, then it should be what was called track roller grease/lube. I'm not sure if its in production, I recall Chevron Marfak, (see attached link) is an NLGI 00, 0, 1 grease. The Marfak NLGI 00 is recommended for crawler track rollers, see the attached cut sheets, where it states this. One I am aware of that should be the correct lube, though there are many out there, I am unaware of what the original specifications were by manufacturer, and the products called for then, something like this should suffice with the characteristics stated in the description.
