Ah, another Dsertdog memory....Yes back in the bad ol' days, Dd owned and loved and thrashed,(or trashed) a '78 ramcharger and a 81 W-150 stepside, both with Dana 44 front diffs. At that time, those axles did indeed have a zerk that was accessible thru a hole in the hub so you could grease the front bearings. Course, no one used it,at least until you spent 500 bucks getting new bearings pressed on your hubs! And that derned ol'leaky inner seal! Even tho Dd regrets the zerks passing, the apparent simplicity of replacement of the newer hub does give pause for a smile.
More mechanics should descover the joy of neversieze....dont leave home without it!
