oiling motors revisited– and chainline

Following up on the discussion a few days ago, which I think alarmed many of us into checking on our motors, I’m having some trouble finding my way around the gear box on my SP20. I’ve posted photos on flickr: if anyone can point me in the right direction I’d be thrilled. The problem is the motor is very hard to access and even see, and I don’t want to pull it out unless I have to.

On a related note, we’re having trouble with the chain rubbing the cabinet side very slightly, enough to make an annoying noise. I don’t want to shorten the lifespan of a chain that is undoubtedly already 30 years past its usable lifespan. This might require pulling the motor anyway, but wanted to see if anyone had any ideas.
