I have gotten the well pump and motor out of the ground and had to buy a new moter. The pump seems dry. Is there any way to lubricate it??

Yes there must be of course. Check your manufacturers instructions or if you don't have same then google for them.

I can't speak for your particular pump, but usually submersible pumps use the surrounding water for lubrication and nothing else is required. In fact, the instructions often stress that other lubricants should not be used.

As Plumbbob says - water is normally used for lubrication - nothing else needed.

Check with manufacturers if possible.
