The best way of re-oiling sintered bronze bearings is to fully immerse 
them in heated oil for an hour or so to allow the oil to me drawn in by 
capillary action.

Most are just a push fit in their housings as they are manufactured to a 
precise size. Do not under any circumstances machine these, as the 
material's pores will be burred over, rendering them useless.
