Stumbled onto a replacement throw out bearing for my '57 stick Ranchero online this a.m. Was surprised to see it has a grease fitting. The truck is new in my ownership so I wasn't aware of this if mine is also a greasable type.

Do I access this through the bottom dust cover?

Regular chassis grease (I use Royal Purple in my gun)? Or something else?

Other stick cars I've owned had sealed TO bearings.

Thanks !

The sealed bearings are more common these days. Chassis grease is fine, just don't over do it. Access is through the bottom dust cover.

The greaseable bearing was standard on the Thunderbird Stick shifts of '55, '56, & '57.

I'm sure it was greasable on the 63 F-100 I once had.

My '59 has a greaseable bearing. You can still get 'em. I decided, since I'm easy on clutches, to go with one that can be greased.
