    In a post on 07/17/2017 you mentioned the following:

    "I put a few drops of oil on the shaft/bearing point and left it one day. Then inverted it from normal installed position, oiled the other bearing and let it sit. "

    Having had an OEM blower fail yesterday that I had oiled the shaft at the bottom (motor side) a few weeks ago I was flustered at best. Scored another OEM blower at the junk yard this morning from a 94 RMW and wanted to find out about the oiling you were referring to. What type of oil did/do you use? Did you oil at the bottom (motor end) as well as under the squirrel cage? How did you get oil under the cage?
