Tilt Grease Nipple & Hydraulic Sterring

Been pondering today down on the RIB, how can I get access to the trim tilt grease nipple with the hydraulic steering - as it blocks the access? it can't be a case of removing it every time can it?

here is a photo - not the best but all i have at the moment.

Is it possible to whip the old nipple out and put a 90 degree nipple in, I know I need to do this to mine.

If you turn you're steering full lock one way you should be able to do one grease nipple then do the full lock the other way & you should get the other grease nipple i can do that on mine with the hydraulic ram in the way yours looks the same Steve

The bit that is in the way doesn't move - the bar moves only.

Don't know about your motor, but my F115 has something like 4 zerk fittings on the tilt tube. As far as I can tell, they all fill the same void, so I hit the ones I can and don't worry about the rest.
