Are you sure it is a 3/16" zerk you used on your restoration? I"ve checked with a number of places, Fastenal most recently, and cannot locate a 3/16" threaded zerk. Fastenal has a 3/16" which is the press in style, but not the threaded.
The 1/8" zerk they carry has a larger thread, near 1/2" and the 1/8" designation is in relation to the nipple size. There isn"t enough clearance to tap and insert a 1/4" zerk. I might paint, move the 1 zerk I have 3 times to grease all 3 joints and call it good.

Don, I don't know how much this will help you as the ones we replaced were on the fast hitch and per the IH Super C parts catalog are part no. 110 161 which is noted only as a 3/16" lubrication fittings. I looked in my grease fitting assortment and it contains 3/16" fittings but they are all the drive or press type as they have a round shoulder beneath the nipple. The ones on my tractor do in fact have a hex shoulder indicating they are screw in type with threads. The drive ones in my assortment have concentric rings cut into the shank as an aid to retaining them in whatever they would be installed in. I had some help on my restoration as it was done in his heated building (before I had one built) and just remember they were broken off is why they were replaced. I can't recall if they were obtained from CaseIH or not at this point but with the hex shoulder they are screwed in. If you know a good machinist you might have them take a good look at what you have to determine if the hole is in fact threaded (as they would have a thread gauge) or if what you think are threads are from the drive type with the concentric ridges cut into them. And again those on my tractor are definitely screw in type which were obtained from CaseIH as they have the hex shoulder to be installed with a wrench or socket and I don't recall cutting threads for them but again Brian might have put the new ones in when I wasn't present but he doesn't recall anything unusual about them, Hal.

Hal, thank you so much for looking, I really appreciate all your help. I called my local Case-IH dealer, they initially could not find that part number, then found reference to it and showed it being changed. They only had access to the 3/16" press in style. I might end up having to go to a junk yard to find them.
Thanks again.

I got the email, thank you. I'm on the phone with my Case-IH dealer now, they see the parts depot listing, they see quantity 7 for part 110 161 but the description is listed as "housing".

Your IH Super C parts catalog, what page is that part number listed?

Dealer also said if they knew exactly where on a Super C the zerk was used, they could probably track it down. Was it every zerk or just a specific one?

Thank you again, please don't inconvenience yourself, I'm sure I can find a work around.

It is reference no. 13 on page 201 and the part is described on page 202. My Super C parts catalog is TC-44B and Revision 4. There are two of them on the fast hitch. A lot of times the part name at the depot is not correct but can't be sure and don't know if they will work with the parts guy to get a better description or not. Your dealership will most likely know, Hal.
P.S. Both of these zerks on my tractor are identical with the hex shoulder.
