Bit of an easy one for those in the know. I have a Daimler Ferret with a no 10 mk 3 generator (90 amp alternator) Can anyone confirm for me that the screw behind the pulley is a lubrication cover and does it need a few drops of oil in it to lube the bearing or does it need grease?

It is listed as a "lubrication screw". I never found any instructions about filling it in any Servicing Schedule or EMER that relates to the generator.

Given that the channel leads to the front bearing that is bounded by "oil seals" each side, I assume oil is the lubricant.

I once saw what often is called a grease nipple fitted here, this usually invites the injection of grease, but like in the Humber 1 Ton Tracta joints these are lubrication nipples & can sometimes be for oil not grease.
