There you go! Use a good non-detergent 20W oil (3-in-1 makes an electric motor specific oil that you can find in the borg). There should be (usually) some felt packing around the sleeve bearing that absorbs the oil and distributes it evenly over time. If you already have the motor open, it might not be a bad idea to pull the felt, clean it good in a solvent, and re-saturate before you re-assemble the motor. Those things are dirt magnets and get really nasty dirty over time, and the motor you have is pretty old.


PS: Check the sleeve bearing and shaft for wear and damage… hopefully they are fine, as it’s a bugger to press out those things.
