Bonnie and others,
Well, I’m pretty sure without looking that the MOTOR has two
tiny oil holes in it. One for the top bearing, the other the
bottom. (one at each end of the motor, not including the long
tapered cable adaptor) These holes are about 1/16 of an inch in
diameter. One or two drops a year should be sufficient. But
since you now know where to put the oil, do it sparingly. Too
much oil will attract dirt.
Grease for the cable; oil for the motor.
