Hurst blower motor cage ?
« on: February 09, 2016, 06:27:47 PM »
I have been fixing up the daily driver 67 Camaro and finally getting the heaters sorted, they were filed up with mouse food/nests and the flaps were stiff and there was no airflow so a complete job was needed.

Fenders off, boxes out, shop-vac used, then a dip in the disinfectant bath for a day or two and its all looking better.

One of the things I found was that the rodents had eaten the plastic fan cage so today I removed its remains and put in the used tin one I had in stock.

Closer inspection of the remains of the old one showed a part number and a Hurst logo.

Did Hurst make fan cages for GM back in the day ?  I am sure as I can be that this car has never been taken apart, all the sealer and nuts look totally undisturbed, the core was a Harrison that matched numbers with the car pretty well so I think this is original.

My 68 fan has the plastic cage and also has the "H".  The "H" is for the Harrison radiator division.

Is it !  Ah ha !

The Logo looks a lot like a Hurst logo, its quite small and probably where my mistake was made.

Thanks.

Here's the one out of my 69. You're right about it looking like the Hurst "H".

Negative. That's the Harrison Radiator Corp logo and it's not a shifter but a thermometer! (Go look at the HARRISON name on your radiator!!)

VERY similar, but not the same.

   Just a friendly reminder, if this is a one wire motor (it should be for '67) then don't put too much paint under the screw head areas on the blower housing otherwise there will not be a good electrical ground to the outer heater cover housing, which is then grounded to the chassis. Also for '67 the two heater cover housing to body bolts w/captive flat washers didn't have star washers as it did in the latter years to ensure a ground to the chassis. At least for April and May 67 that is. I found this out after installing and testing my heater motor and cover which have been repainted and found the paint interfered with having a good ground.
Test before you reinstall the fender so you don't have any surprises later.

Thanks for the reminder Mike. My 69 is a one wire and as you can see in the pictures I did a good job painting it... I'll have to make sure the screws are making good metal to metal contact.

I don't have anything to add except that I would like to have a better one for a 69. Ohio mice are very good at destroying!

I hear you Bentley. I got lucky with a lot of things. This is how mine sat for many years. How a branch didn't take my SS or the Z out is beyond me. We had plenty of field mice too.
