I noticed one of my Unloader Valves is dripping out of one of the Grease Fittings .I was told not to Grease them but on the Unloader Valve itself it says use silicone grease.Does anyone Grease these Fittings?

I used to grease them on a routine basis. They all would leak. Now, two years running, I haven't greased them since and no leaks. I talked to a regional maintenance guy if he greases those when he works on Razors. Nope. He says "if you grease them they'll leak". I even tried that silicone grease WW recommends- leaks.

I'm sure they have made modifications to the current line of these unloaders to address this issue otherwise I won't know what to replace it with.

This is what I've used on a number of machines. They last a long time, up to ten years.

My unloaders seem to need a new o-ring installed every 6 months to a year. Doesn't take long just annoying not being able to shut the water off, I'll try the above next time, thank you!

Well it does have internal moving parts. Be careful about overdressing.
