agree with Wellinington, the bearing question is more complicated.
Maybe there is reason that Micro used PB in their

Now we cannot find easily such compounds so to replace the oil with original

Really I don't know which is good, not to touch
the Micro and keep the bearing in such glop or try to find a new lub for the
engine refreshment and conservation?
