Default David Bradley Super 600 maintenance question

The manual says to put 4 or 5 drops of #20 oil twice daily on clutch shifter blocks, but doesn't say anything about lubricating the bronze bearing in the clutch pulley. I can also get oil in on the clutch's ball bearings, will that work its way down to the bronze bearing or do I need to do something else?

The 600's a beautiful machine, but I feel like it should also be used for its intended purpose as long as there's plenty of TLC. Anyone familiar with what I'm asking? Thanks...

I take the clutch pulley off and put just enough oil on the brass bearing so that it has enough oil to reduce wear. If you use to much oil, it will get on the clutch facings and cause it to slip. About 2 to 3 drops of oil should work.
