Ford Model A - Improved lubrication of emergency brake

The emergency brake toggle lever has originally no grease fitting. The same is with the toggle lever at the emergency brake handle. I supported them both with grease fittings.

I have drilled a 4mm hole into the axle. In the middle of the axle I drilled a second hole which goes from outside until the center of the axle and let the grease come out. At the position where the grease fitting is mounted, I have enlarged the hole until I could press in the fitting. Be careful when you press in the fittings, you should use a special tool for that, otherwise you'll destroy them when you are using just a hammer.

These parts are new, since the old ones were completely destroyed by rust.
