Default Re: 47 generator rear bushing

What's this mystery weep hole?

As I'm trying to fill the oil reservoir for the rear bushing bearing, oil weeps out of that little hole in the side of the reservoir below the level of the bottom of the bushing. Is that how it's supposed to be? If so, it seems the oil in the reservoir below the bushing would remain below the bushing and not touch the bushing to be absorbed into it for lubrication. Or, should that hole not be leaking out oil?
