Would one of you fine fellers please explain to me what the purpose is of the weep hole in a nozzle repad. As you know we usually call for those is a re-pad; usually it's a 1/4" hole with a 1/4NPT thread, and then it's filled with grease after fabrication. What is the hole for? I've heard several explanations, but I'd like to hear a definitive one.
Thanks ! ! !
