Lionel WS-156 Whistle Housing Bearing - The WS-156 whistle housing bearing is used in the base casting of the whistle motor housing. This bearing is used only in the WS-134 and WS-182 whistle housings. It is the bearing located just beneath the armature. Original bearings such as these are made of Oilite® bearing material, a powdered bronze formed under pressure and impregnated with oil. These bearings should be installed using a press, as tapping them in with a hammer could fracture the bearing causing it to fail. Never use grease around these bearing types as grease will block the pores of the Oilite® material. Many parts dealers try and substitute machined brass rod for these bearings as it is cheaper, and while they will work, they need contant oiling as brass has no pores to trap and hold the oil.
