  • where are the oiling points on a Leslie 145



    Hi, does anyone have diagrams/pictures on where you should oil a Leslie 145. I downloaded manual from Captain Foldback but still unsure of where to lubricate. The bottom rotor is squeaky. The top rotor has marking for oil point but not sure on bottom. Any help is appreciated. Thank you</P>

    Somewhat difficult, but remove the rear panel, then the 15"Speaker, then the upper bearing mount,
    then Rotor, then lower bearing mount.
    Remove the two bearing assemblies and soak them in mineral spirits for a while, rinse in same,
    then put two drops of motor oil in each bearing, and reassemble.

    Be sure bearing inner races rotate easily.

    (By the way do not use an air gun to blow solvent out of bearing races)

      The bottom bearing can be removed from the bottom of the Leslie. There are also 8 motor bearings that should be oiled. Motor disassembly required.
