I've had good success with old implements and such on grease Zerks by first applying some heat - a propane/butane torch will work fine, so it melts the hardened, waxed up grease. The heat will also help with the next step which is to remove the Zerk. A dab of penetrating oil like PB BLASTER after the heat will help. Use caution when you go to loosen the Zerks - they will snap off easily and then you will have a bigger issue at hand. Works for me.
