    I added grease fittings to the rear axle when I overhauled the bearings. That's an easy thing to do. You're a lucky guy! You are going to take a look at your rear brakes. Just do it by the book and you won't have any problems.
    Nice day to all.

    Removable plugs to allow rear axle bearing lubrication were used in cars through mid 1957 models - then discontinued. However, were used in 1/2 ton trucks to the 1964 model year.
