140 Early 145 heater fan motor
OK, back story, noticed the heater fan motor in my 68 145 isn’t working, so a while back somebody on here or FB generously sent me a 164 fan to mess with. Finally got around to it and turns out the bushings on the motor shaft are worn oblong so when power is applied to the motor, it just moves over and the rotor touches the stator (like a magnetic force I guess). I pulled it apart to have a look...wondering if I can get some small bearings to replace the bushings? Anyone ever done this before? I haven’t pulled the motor out of my car yet as I thought it would be good to have a working one to swap in once I get around to it. I see Skandix will rebuild them swapping in a newer style motor, but the cost is ridiculous. Thoughts?
