New guest here, and my second post:

I am restoring a small Robbins & Myers desk fan, and am wondering how to treat the front and rear rotor bushings which are riveted to the pressed steel motor housing.

I'm not exactly sure how these work, but I'm guessing they might be the oilite type in which the bearing sits against a felt assembly.

Can I just clean the interior of the bearing and add plenty of the right kind of oil (3 in 1 blue), and call it good, or do I need to drill out those rivets and take these entire assemblies apart somehow?

Yes, just clean the bearings with some Mineral Spirits and use the Blue 3-in 1 Oil to saturate the felt material surrounding the bearing. No need to remove the assemblies.
