The cap is solid i.e. so opening or fitting to insert grease. I had previously removed the cap and dug out the grease in search of a nipple but there was nothing but the open end of a line which ran from the reservoir down to the packing gland. ??? Didn't we send someone to the moon 2 years prior to this being built?

I agree a pic would help and I will get one as soon as possible.
