RESTORING HISTORY ONE CAR AT A TIME

LUBRICATOR FITTING ON STEERING GEAR CHANGED TO A PLUG

To eliminate the possibility of mechanics putting grease instead of gear lubricant in the steering gear, the Zerk fitting has been replaced with a pipe plug (see Fig. 776).

Never put grease in the steering gear. Complaints of hard steering can invariably be traced to that source. Use gear lubricant only in the steering gear-the same lubricant that is used in the axle and transmission. ((776))
