LesB and CaptainKlutz: Thank you very much for the advice. It’s helped me and will probably help others later on.

I took the parts to a motor repair shop today. They are ordering me some replacement bearings that are sealed on both sides. I intend to post an update to identify them once they come in. I also asked about what kind of grease I should use. They advised me to use axle or bearing grease and that I don’t need electrical motor grease. That made sense to me as there are gears and bearings in that leftmost compartment. I already have a tub of brown colored wheel bearing grease, so I’ll use that. Maybe when I run out, I’ll get some of the synthetic stuff CaptainKlutz mentioned.

I also asked the tech to check the bearings I thought didn’t need replacing. He agreed with me except he found one more that he recommended replacing and did it on the spot. I also got to watch how he removed and installed the bearing – very interesting as this is my first time replacing bearings myself.
