    Thanks!
    i don’t know why they put zerk (Spelling?) fittings on there.
    You folks agree with the service technician’s advice and that works for me.
    The compressor is for the home shop so it has seen an easy life

    New bearings are $25 and simple to change.
    Don't loose any sleep.

    I assume you are talking about the electric motor's bearings? I would not grease them. Eventually they will fail, but that will be a long time, and bearings are cheap.

    Another motor lube question

    Hello All,
    I have a 5 HP industrial Baldor (L 1508 T) that came with my Quincy air compressor. (Back in 1987)
    When in industry (aero) the fellow who serviced the Quincy at our facility said “never grease these” as he waved his hand around the fittings.
    So, I’m looking at my motor and thinking about what the service guy said and the forum material about motor greasing.
    I can’t see any grease exit ports. (If they are 180 degrees from the input). Everything runs fine. I guess I’m looking at protecting my investment.

    Thoughts?
    Brian
