Pump the grease reservoirs full, stopping when the plunger gets harder to push. That tells you the piston has bottomed and that's all you need to do. You will note that the resistance required to operate the joint by hand will increase as you get the reservoirs pressurized. This is normal. By the way, we found out the hard way that the copper-based grease is messy stuff. We'd recommend using Nitrile surgical-type gloves at this point. Brake cleaner will remove it from the completed parts.
