If you go cruising through The Vinyl Engine you should find some info on people who actually disassembled their motors to fix them up. First thing is to remove the belt and platter and turn on the motor to see if it is making noise on its own. If it is, perhaps it is only the motor mounting (bolts) which have come loose and need tightening, which can happen because the motor is continually vibrating. Tighten up the bolts. If it is still making noise and there's no dirt or something else touching the motor spindle, then see if the motor casing is held together by bolts. If it is, then take it apart, clean it thoroughly and re-lube it, using high-viscosity oil, or grease. If there are no bolts, then it can still be taken apart by drilling out whatever is holding it together, and cleaning and re-lubing it and re-assembling it with small bolts. Good luck.
