I am still new so bear with me.
How many CUPS are there on a T?
The kind where you turn to add grease to the area.
What kind of grease should I use??
Thanks as always.

I replaced all of mine with grease fittings
I want to know they have grease.you can buy cups that have a fitting inside so they look correct.

Lang's has a chart with all the grease and oil fillers.

Engine fan, steering gear, one on the ball cap, one on the drive shaft, two on the rear axel, and two hubcaps/grease cups on the front hubs. I started spending the money for red.

Because numerous Model T bearings are not sealed, I like to use the grease that's made for boat trailer wheel bearings. It just seems to me that that's about the best you can do to protect unsealed bearings, steering joints and such from "the elements". It's available at marine supply stores like West Marine.

I use high temperature lithium grease everywhere and if I don't have that then I use 1 part elbow grease, 1 part muffler bearing grease, and 1 part bacon grease. I don't think whale blubber is authentic.

If you include the fan grease cup on the early cars, that makes 6. Two on the back axle, one on the universal ball, one on the tailshaft front journal and one on the steering bracket.

The stock grease cups work fine, but if you prefer to use a grease gun, the vendors also sell grease cups with zerks hidden inside so that you can use a grease gun, but still retain the correct look.
