The Chevy blower motor has a cooling vent hole for the motor while the Jeep motor does not. I assume you must seal this hole to keep water and debris out. Does this cause any problem with the life of the motor?
Depends on what kind of environment the motor is likely to see most. Moisture and heat are both enemies of the blower motor. I would seal it up and not use it excessively, IMHO... the reman fan comes with a plug for the hole if you want to use it.
I asked in another thread as well but....what about a close up of the linkage/pivot on the "heat" cable. Mine seems to be missing whatever it is that bolts to the end of the heater box and blocks off the opening and attaches the linkage.
Its the one in the second pic (in the background by that nice purple box ) Can you get me a shot of it more from the drivers side (but just as close up) I need to see it from the end of the heater instead of the front
I looked around and I see my blower motor is right behind the glove box. I think I read that the 1977 and before had this. Is there any upgrade for this and would anyone know why is my 1980 like this? 1980 CJ7 it has fiberglass everything, but the windshield frame. It was rebuilt by a PO. Can I just buy everything to replace this and make it work, or does the fiberglass tub prevent this?
Hi guys...found this forum by searching around for this very subject. Glad to see the specs for the vent routing in this one. I ripped the cable system out of the YJ after the dash controls broke apart. I'm hoping to perma-fix it to split the air between the floor and window vents, and bring in 50-50 fresh air to keep the window fog down.
Also, bumped because of the crazy winter we're having here in the desert, maybe others could benefit.
