Question Rod Bearing Lubrication for an Early IHC M

Does anyone know how the connecting rod bearing is lubricated for an early International M (1918 Ignitor/kerosene model). This engine does not have a grease cup on the end of the crankshaft, nor provisions for one. There is a hole in the crankshaft rod bearing area that appears to go down the crank arm toward the main bearing on the governor side. I have tried to push grease into the mains hopig to see some come out the rod bearing, but no luck.

I was told that on the very early M`s that some had the bearing grease cup on the governor side of the engine on the crank end.Dave

For some reason they had for the 1½hp in 1917 and the 3hp in 1918 a crank pin lubricating screw 9656TA 3/4" x 3½", the same year and only in 1918 they changed this screw for the RH. grease cup 9881T. The 6hp got the RH. grease cup right in the beginning, but only in 1918 too.
I have never seen a M with the grease cup at the governor side.
