    You know, I did look for one. I can imagine they're hard to come by, but you'd think there'd be one somewhere. I got discouraged in my search, but maybe I'll try again. The more information I have, the better I can immerse myself in the story.

    Okay so these things have little nipples poking out all over the place underneath. You plug a thing on that is similar to old time bicycle ride pumps. Once the hose is connected to the bib, you operate a lever to force grease in. It's a guess when enough is enough. Guarantee the son pumps that thing too many times and ends up will a blob of grease squirting out over there that he does not know what to do with.
    So, I did a quick google search that came up with nothing but baby bibs with "Pink ladies" or "T Birds" on them. I found this just as amusing as the suggestion you made. I like the idea, but I need a little more to go on. When would you need to do this? What is it greasing exactly?

    Lots and lots of shop rags! I can only imagine! XD

    I looked at the links you sent and realized i had been searching too specifically, do i did a general search. The cheapest one on ebay was the exact one I needed! I might also get the tornado engine one.

    The Wagonmaster in Kerrville Texas a a car lot full of wagoneers restored and ready for sale here and abroad. Mostlly they do later model Grand Wagoneers but I suspect they know about earlier models. Try them, but you should have specific questions ready, I imagine they stay busy www.wagonmaster.com
