Can I use this block with 3/4" Manila rope?  Is a yarding block and standard block designed for different jobs? 
1 Answer
You could probably fit 3/4" manila rope in this block, you just need to be careful, file down any sharp edges and use the block for synthetic line only (don't mix wire rope with soft rope on the same block/sheave).  The names are more just designations, somewhat arbitrary.  Really, a yarding block is not much different than a traditional snatch block, except it doesn't have a swivel hook or shackle on top.

Please give me instructions on how and how much to grease it?  Can I over grease it?  Can it be damaged from over greasing?  Do I pump it in until I see grease coming out somewhere?  Can you recommend a particular grease gun and type of grease?
1 Answer
We checked with our supplier, and this is what we were told.


The fitting is not proprietary and should work with any standard lube gun.  Since you are only greasing a small bearing, it should not take more than one compression of the grease gun handle.  The manufacturer does not provide a grease type recommendation.  In looking at this block we believe the grease will come back out into the well that the zerk fitting sits in, but this is not guaranteed.
