    Nipples

    For grease guns! Do they sell nipple packs at hardware stores generally so someone can properly attach grease gun to a motor? Thought Home Depot would have it, they sell grease guns but no nips.

    Are you asking about zerk fittings?

    If so, any decent wholesaler will carry them. There are two common thread sizes.

    If a motor does not have zerk's when it was new the bearing may have shields, permanently lubricated, and adding grease could harm the motor.

    This is not always the case but I would check that.

    The little nipples you screw into the grease ports on a motor, those nips!! The ones that you take those set screws out both the top and bottom on each side, and than screw your nip in.

    Those sound more like oil holes.
