|On the collar's front bearing there is a hole that drains back into the gear box from the bearing. It's probably just to allow excess grease to return to the gear box but if you take the blades off and put some grease around the shaft and when you press the blades back on it will squeeze grease back into the gear box. I doubt thats on the instructions.
And you would think that the instructions would include how to operate the collar as it was very unique to fans up till then. Maybe I'm being picky but I sure would like the fan as close to original as can be.
