Oiling Motors

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

Where are the oiling points for the motors and power vent, and what type of oil do you use?

Do a search on here on BLOWER OIL or SAE20, Most use the 3 in 1 Electric Motor Oil, I believe SAE20 (Approx).
There "should" be holes in the sides of the motor housing for oiling. If not, they may be sealed bearings.

Here's a few threads on the topic....

Did they tell you to use Anderol 465 ?
I bought some a few years ago for my corn/pellet stove. It is a little pricey but I thought that if I have it I might as well use it on my LL Pioneer.

no, they told me SYNTHETIC OIL they sell it in small bottles. that oil you use ANDEROL 465 looks like it cost a lot too, at $15.00 for 2 oz so it must be pretty good

The Anderol 465 is a synthetic oil and I did buy the 2 oz bottle about 6 years ago and I still have 3/4 of a bottle so $15 is not too bad if you figure how long 2oz will last. I think it is the oil that is recommended by Fasco. But for all I know Fasco may have an interest in Anderol.
