Inducer motor

My inducer motor is going out, been making quite a screaching somewhat grinding noise for a few days now. I ordered another one but it's going to take a couple weeks to get here....Is there anything I can do now to help it out? Or check for?

Mine was making a lot of noise a year or 3 ago. It's a package unit up on the roof. 1990 vintage. A Trane or Lennox I think. I took it off (what a PITA), took the fan housing apart, cleaned the fan and housing, blew the motor out with compressed air, sprayed the bearings with a little bit of Liquid Wrench Chain Lube and the spun the shaft a few times. Let it sit and then did it again. Put it back together and it's been running fine and quiet ever since.
