Not to be too dense but where in the manual(s) does it explain how :
1) to separate the spindle (top?, rotor?) from the base of the motor?
I've seen pictures of the base of the motor so I presume it can be done.
2) much oil should be put into the bearing?
The user manual states "apply two or three drops to the motor shaft". I have a hard time believing that 2 or 3 drops will be sufficient after I completely remove 30 years of grime, grunge, and metal wear from the bearing.
My SP10 is not in mint condition and was (apparently) used in a radio station (it still has the station's sticker w/ inventory bar code stuck to the back).
I appreciate the concern for its well being but I bought it as a fun learning project and plan to rip it apart in an effort to get it working as optimally as possible.
