 This may be a weird question but when it comes to mcmillan fan motors can you oil one side of the motor or do you have to oil both sides, I have a lakewood 223 from the late 80s and cannot for the life of me get the blades off, for my 2nd gen k223 I was able to oil the front port through the little hole on the blade hub using a flashlight but it was fairly difficult

YOU WILL NEED TO OIL BOTH SIDES... CAN YOU POST A PICTURE OF THE FAN AND BLADE?

YES THOSE ARE FUN...MY METHOD IS TO LAY THE THING ON ITS BACK, PUT ONE FOOT ON EACH OPPOSING CORNER (BE VERY CAREFUL I STANDING ON IT SO ONE SIDE DOESNT TIP UP, REACH DOWN, GRAB THE BLADE UNDER THE CENTER HUB WITH 2 HANDS AND SEE IF IT WILL PULL UP AND OFF. BE CAREFUL YOU DONT FALL
