It's the lack of a decent film of lube that's the issue.
The nipple isn't the correct type IMHO to allow a good seal to get a high pressure injection. Also I think you need a good quality grease gun. Mine blows off when I squeeze really hard. I think it needs a positive lock-on for the gun/nipple rather than a push-on.
You need high pressure to get any lube at all between the bronze and the steel as the fit is very very accurate. Unless they are greased thoroughly, they will wear.
Mine was greased ok, but obviously not enough. If I could have forced lube in through the nipple hard enough to get grease to come out the sides, I reckon the bearing faces wouldn't wear. If you can get it in like that, and do it weekly(?) it'll last forever I reckon.
I wonder if I could inject oil instead of grease?
That could be easier perhaps.
