I'm not sure what these access lids were called, but I suspect that they allowed visual inspection for "red glow" and squirt lubrication. Note the year of patenting.

I've often wondered if the British beer "dispenser" was the inspiration for this gasoline pump design. Overall, my locked downPentax ist* DL "utility camera" continues to capture in a predictable manner what I see on the road.

Steve, I believe those axle boxes had a hank of oil soaked cotton or wool that rubbed against the axle journal.
