If you look at my few posts you’ll see I felt the HAHA needed a few changes and I made them. I haven’t got word from the people at Hensley if my comments aren’t welcome, but if I was doing it, I would make the changes that I have made. My posts are in the ultimate HAHA users guide forum. So here is another.
Path of least resistance. Everything follows it. I, in my own simple way, have no faith in the operation that, when you pump grease into the zerk fitting it will go where needed on the weight bars. The fit between the weight bar and the pocket they fit into is way to loose to expect the grease to flow 100% around the weight bar then pass out the bottom when the pocket the weight bar is in becomes full of grease. If you have the bars loaded then you have at least two contact areas on the bars, two bearing surfaces. Nothing will force grease between these bearing surfaces unless you have a grease grove and lube line running to it, and you don’t. So I get a few fingers of grease, cover the end of the weight bar that fits into the pocket and push it up into the hole, knowing it is now covered 100% with grease. Those of you that can’t stand grease, rubber gloves.
