The grease fitting should be in the side of the tube were your hand is, in the end cap/plug there should be a pressure relief fitting.

Hi Dan Thank you. They do have the grease fittings on the side as you say ,but one of mine also has a grease fitting in the end as you can see .the other has nothing :? I had 2 spare's that I just cleaned up and one is good with a release valve the other has a plate that has been welded in place with no release valve at all . I will get the release valves from a tractor dealer and add one to the yoke that needs one and replace the other.

:) Hi. You should be able to use a freeze plug if you can find one to fit it, drill and tap it for the release valve then you can stake it in place to keep it from being pushed out when the shafts are working in and out.

Now I will start to reasemble a new front end for my A2 ,this is not coming together cheap .I managed to get 16 new set's of U joints from a buddy of mine in the US for $18.00 each, he seems to have the best price. I did notice that the U joints are not the same as the old ones I took off as thay do not have rubber seals to hold the grease in but that the cups are all steel :shock: I hope they work out for me.

Thank's Mike I took your advice and had the control arms sent to a shop to have the bushings pressed in. No POR-15 on these parts but it will be added to the body before painting . :)
