yes they were,dugh I didn't even think of that(even with all the grease on top)
I quess they were not used because of inefficentcy(waste of grease if one fitting becomes clogged) I have seen two busses like this.
Hopefully they replaced all the zerks on the parts and actually greased them.
Thanks,it's clear now...it was too dang cold that day, good news is the wife doesn't mind to stop and look at them now,
She even says she would prefer a dognose instead of a flat nose...baby steps
