happy (almost)  new year to all!

I've removed my 3500s heater blower to clean and re-lube, and am  
wondering if anyone can recommend the lubricant I should use for the  
shaft and bearing cups? Light oil is generally what has been  
suggested on the web, but I noticed a small amount of grease in the  
cup, and wonder if oil is correct? Grease, it seems to me, would  
congeal and cause the motor to over-work in cold weather, but there's  
nothing in the design of this motor housing to keep oil in, or to add  
oil without removing the unit.

Thanks for any thoughts.
