Hydro Flame Noisy

Just got a new to me 93 34 footer. Started up the furnace which was growly then a bit quieter but I think still noisier than it should be. Might be bad blower bearings I guess but before I do anything drastic I would like to give it a good cleaning and see if that helps. What do you think? Can someone advise me how to proceed?
Thanks
Marshall

How hard it is to remove? I expect the blower bearings are the problem. Sometimes you can lube them and sometimes not. Once they get to the point where the fan won't move at all you are done.

I was hoping someone could tell me. Doesn't look too too bad. The manual says the bearings are permanently lubricated. If I go through the trouble of pulling the furnace maybe I will just replace the blower assembly and be done with it.

check that the impeller blades are clean one mud dauber wasp can unbalance the blower if it has made a nest.
