The track adjuster of track loaders and excavators are basically a hydraulic cylinder that is extended with grease instead of oil , the fitting that screws into it is a 10,000 psi grease fitting which is easily 2 1/2 the size of and ordinary 1/8 inch grease fitting , it's a big piece of metal , larger than most all bullets that I have seen , the pressure it is under I would guess to be at least 3000 or more , I have seen people get spalatter with the grease and have it pushed under their skin and leave marks for very long time but have never seen this happen before

oil or grease under the skin REQUIRES MEDICAL CARE it can cause gangrene Jeff
sterlclan, just what does N 43 51 468 W 070 54 828 Elev 697 refer to? If I put it into google maps it comes up as either Des Moines Ia or Washington D.C, both of which are probably wrong. Just curious.

You need to know the datum that the GPS corodinates are taken in and use a chart that uses the same datum or you will get a different location

If you enter 43 51.468N 070 54.828W in Google Maps you will get a location North of Parsonsfield Maine.
Both Google Earth and Google Maps require you to enter the coordinates as LATITUDE then LONGITUDE.
The coordinates he gave are actually 43 degrees, 51.468 minutes North Latitude by 70 degrees, 54.828 minutes West Longitude.
Which is the same as 43 degrees 51 minutes and 28.08 seconds North Latitude by 70 degrees, 54 minutes, and 49.68 seconds West Latitude and could be entered in Google Earth or Google Maps as 43 51' 28.08"N 070 54' 49.68"W
The earth is a circle divided into 360 degrees. Each Degree can be divided into 60 pieces each of these pieces is a Minute of angle or 1/60th of a degree. Each Minute can be divided into 60 pieces which are defined as Seconds of angle or 1/360th of a degree.
Positions on earth can be described as so many degrees north or south of the Equator and so many degrees east or west of Greenwich England which was adopted as the Prime Meridian (0 degrees of Longitude)

I would say google maps is wrong close but no cigar, yes they are gps coordinates of my driveway in Porter Maine if you enter my address in google maps it sends you to the way wrong end of my street ...........................Jeff
