Lubed for life, backwards, means it dies when
the lube runs out.
I've had to drill, and pump some oil in. At least
once, in the last few weeks.

"permanently lubed" really means "lubed for life" - as in, when the
lub runs out, it's done. Some stuff cannot be lubed without total
dissassembly. Some things you can puncture and oil - and some things
just totally go heck in a handbasket if you get the wrong kind of oil
in trying to do right.
