My guess it was not originally designed to be run using a light oil. Friction of motion alone will help to dissipate it. Also not knowing how the well is designed, if it would hold it for a long period. I would try a light grease, Vaseline comes to mind, and see if it improves.
You can download a printable strobe disc from Vinyl Engine, just register.
Grease is my guess too. Alternatives to petroleum jelly include gun grease and the lithium grease used on auto door hardware.
All from the advice of audio forum posters, for the arm and platter mechanisms I used Super Lube 21030 synthetic grease.
For the motor I initially used Super Lube 51010 synthetic oil, but then replaced that with LA-CO zoom spout turbine oil.
I'll try grease on the motor.
