There may not be one. My 06 doesn't have a fitting on the rudder housing. I have to pull the rudder to grease it each year.

Here is the one I installed on my boat. You can see the grease zerk on the black section. The old one was exactly the same.

I find it odd that your 07 x45 didn't come with a zerk. my 07 x2 did. was it a option!

I think hammer's boat originally had the grease fitting and he just replaced his port which also has a grease port, it was CantRepeat '06 x30 and eddyb '05 x10 which don't have any fittings...

Nope, not going to do it. I don't mind pulling the rudder to grease it.
