Tiger Cub grease question

On the front two wheels, there is a cap on the top....does that screw off along you to grease the inside or do you have to unscrew the bolt that is protruding from the side of the housing?....

I know it has a grease fitting on the wheel, but I'm talking about the top of each wheel assembly.

The cap just pushes on like a trailer wheel hub cap, Remove the 1/4-28 screw from the side and install a grease fitting.

You can pop the cap off the top and drill a small relief hole in the side to reduce pressure and keep the cap from being pushed off from future greasings.

Dixie's come from the factory with the hole;

My Tiger Cub has grease zert that are capped so you can take them out and put in zerts. But Rob idea is a very good one to drill hole to take off pressure of overfilling it with grease. Mine kept popping off on my small cub so I had to swedge the metal into the cap....which wasn't the best of ideas.
