During these long, wet, cold winter evenings I have been cleaning and trying to restore as many components as possible. The first was the heater Blower motor and housing assembly. I glass beaded the housing, and painted it black. I then went through the blower motor, greased the bearing, and cleaned the brushes & Armature. I reassembled it, and it blows fast and quiet just like it did originally. I have some before and After pictures:
I will continue to restore heater parts such as the metal plenum, and the metal under dash heater box that contains the heater core.
If I keep working on restoring different components until the Oregon Rain stops, I have a good chance of running out of things to restore!
