CA front steering support

I have the radiator off the CA and noticed a plug in the front of the steering support. Where do you add gear lubricant? under the radiator support? I did a search in the archives and only found that some folks remove this plug, insert a grease fitting and use a grease gun. Might I find I have seal leaks if I don't use grease? Thanks in advance for any input.

As long as you have the radiator out remove the support that the radiator sits on. Just 4 bolts, gently tap it loose. Don"t worry about the gasket, you can make a new one from paper gasket material. By removing the radiator support this will let you look into the pedestal to see if you have any 140w gear lube in the housing. If not, you could use all purpose chassis grease to fill up the cavity around the bevel pinion and segment gear. I replaced the bearings, upper and lower seals on my CA NF this past winter. Can be done but a real pain. George R.

George R. (MN), thanks. I turned out the bolts and the support came free, someone else had been in there with grease and the gasket looks fine. I re-smeared the grease and will reinstall. Haven't had it running since last summer/fall. Some wires disconnected and memory shorter than last fall so I hope to reconnect. Some are so bad I really should rip them all out and rewire as I'm sure it would help let the juice flow better than the taped up/grease/dirt encrusted 1955 wiring harness does now.
