Has you car been restored, or is it still original? Thanks for you input.
Hudson used a fairly complex (10 pieces each) grease cup in the teens. It has a cylindrical barrel with a hex just above the taper to the 1/8 NPT threads. There is a knurled cap which turns with the "T" handle via a square hole. Turning the handle causes an internal piston to move up or down on the square shaft via threads internal to the barrel. These were made by Bowen and Hudson used both the 00 and the 000 sizes. They nickle-plated the ones that showed (spring shackles, steering linkage, etc.).
