Greasing Outboard

Nissan 8 hp. I can''t force grease into the the bottom pivot bearing. The top bearing is OK.

It looks like the old grease hardened up in the bearing, or possibly there''s some corrosion in there. As a consequence it takes quite a bit of force on the tiller to pivot the engine and steer the dinghy.

Is there any way to clean out the old grease?

Bob
