Question Husqvarna 445 Sprocket Tip Grease Gun

Can someone provide me with a link as to where I can locate a sprocket tip grease gun for a Husqvarna 445 18" chainsaw?

If it's just the grease gun you need,, you can get one @ any hardware store or any small engine place that sells chainsaw parts.. Around here even the auto parts stores have them.. Roger

Yeah, I ordered one on-line, along with another chain bar as I am not sure if I fried the sprocket on my current bar.

What I don't understand with this chainsaw and the manual that tells you how to lubricate the sprocket is there is no way to inject the grease near the center of the sprocket. There is a very small hole towards the outside of the sprocket where I think I can see about half of a bearing and the remainder of the hole is open so you can see right through. There is one of these holes at the bottom of the bar on one side and at the top of the bar on the other side. I will be attempting to lubricate this thing this weekend but am not sure I will be very successful. I am used to having some sort of fitting. It looks as though I will either just shoot the grease right out the other side or somehow have to jam it against the partial bearing I can see and hope for the best.

If anyone has any experience with this, please let me know!
