Agreed. And USUALLY you find a pipe plug in the top of the forward fan bearing housing. I was always told Deere intended we remove the plug, install a zerk, grease the bearing, remove the zerk and replace the plug. The explanation I was given was the plug was less apt to introduce dirt into the housing than the zerk.

Don't know if the Engineers in Waterloo actually thought that way or not but that's the story I was told & I couldn't argue with it.

Farmallb, In looking at my March 1950 John Deere "A" dealer parts catalog, PC-RA1 - (3-50) Revised, John Deere Waterloo Tractor Works.
I see two fan bearing housing with tube.
One with just a pipe plug at the front and one with the pipe plug and a threaded hole behind it for a
ventilator pipe to go to the top side of the breather filter housing that would suck a warm oily vapor through the tube from the governor housing forward near the front fan bearing and up the vent pipe, thus oiling the front bearing.
This was for tractors 584000 - 647999 ( 1950 )
