Grease fittings, 1945,45" wl

Does anyone know correct thread size for rear brake actuating lever? One book says 5/32"-32 thread, and I bought colony pack and it says 5/16-3/, I need to buy tap and re-thread but I'm unsure which is correct. I have old and new fittings.
Grease fitting on seat post is bigger then 5/16, possibly 3/8? It doesn't look likes it's been altered but I'm not sure of that size either or if they had used any size?

My clutch lever has a hole but no threads between rivets, is it possible all didn't come with a fitting?

Thanks for any and all the help
