Overall, are they worth the change?

Do they perform as described below?

The pressure relief drain valve would eliminate the need to remove the drain plug and run the motor for 20 minutes. That's a nice labor savings if you could just start up and turn the equipment back over.

The pressure relief grease zerk would help eliminate the possibility of over-greasing the bearing, thereby reducing failures.

I am interested in this topic, as well.  Our factory has a number of applications where it is very difficult to get to the grease drain plug to remove with the equipment running.  I would like to be able to grease these motors during the shift with Ultrasound.  I was thinking that it may be a good idea to install these relief zerks in new greasable motors with no means of relief built into the design.  We would only install these zerks in new motors or in motors that have been observed to discharge grease as grease is added.  

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
