Good job on the trailer, still struggling to understand you yanks calling nipples zerks

 

Just imagine been out on Saturday night with some foxy sheila in the back seat of your ride, trying to cop a feel of her zerks lol 

 

Doesn't roll off the tounge quite the same lol

Push cart or billy cart  as we call them out here looks like lots of fun

It's hard for a lot of people to understand that things with a personal history are worth so much more than store bought stuff, Im sure you know what I mean

Paul;

The name was coined after the inventors name; "Oscar Zerk". It was similar to the grease fitting invented by the Alemite Corp. but the "zerk" locked onto the fitting for a positive hold.

I was in the navy with a guy from down under and he spoke of "Shaggin his Sheila" fairly often....

 

Found this:

Why is it called a Zerk fitting?

The design, named after Oscar Zerk, used a fitting much smaller than the Alemite pin-type and did not lock the hose coupler or hand gun and fitting together. Instead, the seal between them was maintained by the pressure of a pushing action when the operator applied the coupler to the fitting.
