As I get to know this car I found someone mistook the two front brake wheel cylinder bleed screws for grease zerks.

And I don't know why the forum rotates the pictures.

Yes sir're ya gotta pump lots a good ol' Chassis Grease in there to keep those Brakes greased up! :D
I wonder if they greased the Muffler Bearings too. :eek:

They say there's one born every Minute. :(

Maybe the grease was to ward off the "rust tightly closed" gremlin

I've seen that before. Fortunately, the grease won't go in. ;)

Maybe they just smeared the grease on the outside to keep the screw from rusting up & seizing? I've broken off stuck ones and also resorted to a low torch to try get rusted ones loose.

Really not a bad idea.I've fought with too many rusty bleeders over the years.
