    69 rear axle grease fitting

    The grease fitting on my rear axle does not look normal. It has a steel tail sticking out of the center where I am used to seeing a ball.

    AFAIK there is no grease fitting on the rear axle, could it be the rear axle vent that you mean ? https://www.splendidparts.de/kaufhau...0&languageid=1

    The rear axle vent mentioned above is located on top of the axle housing on the passenger side. It may have been plugged at one time. This vent is a small plastic piece now being reproduced and sold by the fine folks at OGTS. I know all this because someone had plugged my vent. The new piece is a tight fit. I had to coat it in oil and use a 1x4x6 block of wood to put enough pressure on it to seat it.

    That's the later type of vent, the earlier type is a steel ball with a piece of tubing attached to it.

    That’s it. Thanks. Looks almost like a grease fitting.
