Dust cap came off somewhere while traveling. Where do I grease?

That pic was when the cap or grease cover was still on with the rubber plug in the center off in an attempt to grease. I'll see if I can get another.

looks like they added the rubber insert bearing cover which is typically used for a posi lube axle, which by the pic it does not look like you have one. I would switch those out for some buddy bearing covers and then you will nave a grease fitting.

i think there was one model of hubs that had the grease fitting on the back - so the grease entered from the back and towards the front.

then the posi lube axle came out and that model became obsolete.

If it is a roller that means the cage is gone and you have more to worry about than just grease. First thing I would do is spray those lugnuts with PB so you'll be able to get the wheel off. I would also plan on checking all the rest of the wheels to see if they have the same issue.

Yep, after further review I see the long / short end, but not the looped eye of a cotter pin...

Good eyes, HS!!!

I hate getting old! LOLOL
If it is a cotter pin where is the other end? A little wipe with a rag would help with the view!

Look at the back of the hub casting,there should be a grease fitting if it is a super lube hub. It does the same thing as the through spindle design.

Also looks like you got some water in there. I would pull the hub and inspect before repacking. You want to replace the seal with a good rubber body double lip seal, also I would replace the caps and plugs while you are at it. We should have everything you need if you want to give me a call.
