Is this fan lubricated with oil? I see some grease. Should I clean and try some 3in1 oil?

Please post a photo showing what your fan looks like.   Few will know by the Style No.

That particular fan shown is lubricated in the front by an oil cup under the front bearing.   If it's filled with grease clean it out, clean or replace the felt wick, and refill about 2/3 full with 20wt. Motor oil.   

OK....



NOT OK:


OK.... (I use Zoom Spout and Valvoline or Red N Tacky for where grease is used such as in the gearbox)


OK...
