Evening folks,

I need to remove the heater blower motor on my 1964 Bullnose 96.

The radiator looks like it's in the way and looking in the workshop manual, I haven't found any info regarding how to do this :oops:
Does the motor come out from the motor box, or does the whole box come off the bulkhead with the motor still attached and then remove the motor afterwards :?:

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Will

P.s, the heater box I'm referring to is the earlier cardboard type, with the blower motor mounted on the front edge at an angle downwards and just behind the radiator. Not, the later metal V4 style with motor mounted in the front of it and a grey plastic feed.

Taken from manual...
1. Open hood and disconnect fan motor cables.
2. Back off screws in front cover of fan casing, and lower cover and motor to permit release of fan impeller from shaft.
3. Detach impeller and lift out motor with casing cover from engine compartment.
4. Remove fan impeller.
5. Back off screws fixing motor to front casing cover.

Install fan motor in reverse sequence. Check before installation that motor ground lead makes satisfactory contact.
During above work, check also functioning of fresh-air heater controls and adjust and lubricate as necessary.

To be honest, I would take the 'remove radiator first' method then draw the fan unit out of the housing.

I've done this a couple of times - by far the simplest/easiest way is to remove the radiator first.
