Default Greasing B6000 clutch release/throwout bearing

I just got my B6000 basket-running, barely in time for the visiting grand kids to have a great time riding around on it. It sounds like the clutch throwout bearing is making noise. There has been a lot of discussion on greasing throwout bearings, but when I searched I didn't find anything on a B6000. There is a hole in the tractor "tunnel" that should line up with the throwout bearing, but I see no grease fitting there. I've looked up from underneath (someone had commented the bearing could be installed 180 degrees out of position on some tractors) but I don't see anything that looks like a grease fitting. Does the B6000 have a greaseable clutch release/throwout bearing? If it is supposed to, are there some after-market bearings that don't have grease fittings?

Thanks for the help.

Greasing the throw out bearing does not actually "grease the throwout bearing". What you are greasing is the slideing part that holds the bearing to the front trans collar. The foward and aft movement.
If the bearing is makeing a noise, it will have to be replaced, along with a new clutch and pressure plate.
