Pump Noise

I know less than nothing about HVAC but am more than competent with tools...

These photos are of the culprit. There is a noise that leads me to think that something needs lubrication. I see two possible places to add oil... there are directions as what and how much but I am not sure where....

There are two obvious places.. to the right and left of the label (as seen in the picture). I don't know if oil can go in both and if the instructions apply to both.

The pump is spinning just fine but makes a squeaking noise that has gotten louder and louder over the last few weeks.

Thanks!

try about 3 drops of something like 3 and 1 oil in both places it should quieten down. The bearings are dry from the heat. You should oil it at least 1 time every month or two.
