You will have to pull the endbells off to access the bearings, if there are ne provisions for external greasing.
Most of those motors had open bearings and it should be easy.

Thanks.

Interestingly, there are places on the outside of the motor housing that look like oil holes that were never drilled out. Perhaps the same motor housing was used on two different versions of the motor, one with external oil holes and one without.

Maybe then it has sealed bearings.

Have your say...
