I have an electrolux 2101 canada floor polisher that is in severe need of lube. What do I need in terms of oil or grease and where does it go? Any help, thanks!

What requires lube? The gears are on bushings that are packed with absorbent material. You soak that with 3 in `1 oil. Other than that the motor bearing dont usually get greased - lol just replaced.

After about an hour it started to slow down so I shut it off -- couldn't turn the brushes by hand. I disassembled and repacked the three capped reservoirs with 3-in-1. The spiral/helical drive gear from the motor looked real rusty so I shot it with WD40. Reassembled and tried it. It seems better. Oh, and I can turn the brushes by hand again now.
