The blower motor on my '63 is squealing from time to time. It is an A/C car if that makes any difference. I decided to pull it out today and add a few drops of oil to the motor bearing. The shop manual states to "remove five screws retaining motor assembly to blower housing and remove motor and fan assembly. It appears that the motor is mounted out the bottom of the blower housing, and is inaccessible from the engine compartment. I attempted to remove the housing from the fire wall by removing the 4 screws along the top, and a nut on a remaining fastener underneath, but it would only pull away from the fire wall at the top, and only about 1/2 and inch, Am I misunderstanding the instructions in the shop manual? Thanks for any help anyone can offer.
Thanks Tony. I'll give that a shot tomorrow. Sounds like something that will be done totally by "feel", so it should be interesting putting it back in and getting the screws lined up with the holes. The only photo that I was able to find was a single shot with a green circle around it, but that should be enough to work with.,
