I've noticed looking at pictures of model T's online, that there is a grease cup at the rear spool of the drive shaft. I have a 26-27 but do not see a place for a grease cup. Am I missing it or does this year not have one? Thanks.
I've never come across that Rick, the spool bearing is lubed by the diff oil.
Thanks. I have a pic but can't resize on my phone. I appreciate the response.
Maybe you've seen a closed spool that was used up until 1920? They have a stop screw for the replaceable bearing sleeve inside. The later style open spool didn't have any separate sleeve and thus no need for a stop screw.
Only the early '09s have a grease cup in the spool area, but no spool!
That's it! I'm finding its better to double check these things!
I saw a pic on here a few days ago of a '15 closed spool axle that had a grease cup in it where the bolt should be. I didn't ask...
Perhaps it was meant to look reminiscent of the VERY early rear axles...
I knew they have no spools but didn't know about the grease cup...
Like these guys basically say above, you're good to go. :-)
Dumb question maybe. Have you had your rear axle apart for Babbitt thrust washer replacement? Told ya it was dumb. :-)
