Neither spindle on my project has a oil cup on top. Nor did the spring bushings. I purchased a handful of the steel flip top oil cups and they tap in lightly into the spring bushings. But the holes in the spindle tops are too large and the oil cups just slop in and won't stay put. I tried a grease cap and it's fitting is too large. I can't feel any threads in the spindle holes and I cannot find a vendor reference to different size oil cups.

Did Bubba just drill out the holes larger or is there an oil cup that will fit this application?

The oilers on the spindles and tie rods are a larger size than the ones on the spring bushings:

I have seen some spindle bolts that the oil cup holes are too big for the normal large cups. If you have any of the larger cups you could try expanding the bottom to get a push fit if they just drop in.

Thank you. That is exactly what I need. I'll get 4 of the larger size and a few back up of the smaller size for my spring bushings.
