Some had one, some had two. Someone knowledgeable will be along in a minute
with dates and model numbers. I think mine has two on one side, one on the
other! Depends if they have been replaced or not, and with what!
BTW, someone said to fill them up to the top. Others to the levelling plug
(if it has one). To the top is probably safer. I prefer oil (EP90) rather
than one shot grease as it's easier to deal with if I have to adjust the
swivel pre-load. The grease is designed to get everywhere, and it does.
