[DML] Re: Blower motors


Harold is correct,but the danger is that if it has gotten that bad,it 
is just putting a band-aid on a damaged item(the bearing part)it will 
quiet it down most likely,but the damage to the bearing is(might be) 
already done(and combined with the age)could acutally cause it to 
catch fire! As the bad bearing,can actually heat up,and use the new 
lube,as fuel.(ask me how I know)I had one catch fire on me on a GM car
(they are made by Delco-Remy)and the same as most 1980's GM cars,(in 
size, shape, and looks)but from what I understand,the main difference 
is it runs backwards from the standard GM models,so you have to make 
sure you get the correct one.It is possible to change the bearing,but 
a real p.i.t.a. to do,and just not worth it.Also the OTHER end of the 
shaft would need lube to at the same time,as that end might also be 

Hope that helps
