Yeah I thought that was what was going to be the case, because the stock motor is smaller. I guess I am a little annoyed that I bought the "made in china one" so is the PM102 made in America? I had to get the one from NAPA because none of the other part stores had anything in stock and I needed it right away so that's what I went with. I guess if it craps out on me I will update but for now I am VERY VERY VERY impressed by it's insane output.

Checking in the Corvallis, Albany and Eugene, OR. area. This includes what was available at NAPA, Knechts, Autozone and CarQuest. The only not Made in China was available at Eugene Service Parts ~ Made in Canada (4 Seasons)

Oh well I guess. I like to buy American and Canada is probably better than China, but like I said before the motor I got although it is chinese it is awesome.

Perhaps the one I bench tested was damaged in transit, or made by a new hire.
I've been dubious of Chinese manufacture since my recent experience with Made in China Thermostat Housings. Upon reinstalling the Performer manifold on my motor (leaky gasket) I dropped the Thermostat Housing and it fractured. Bought a new one (made in China) from NAPA and when I went to hook up the hoses I found the angle was different to the point it was interfering with the vacuum advance on the distributor. Went back to NAPA and looked at another with the same part number and it not only was the angle different from my original piece, if was different from the other made in China piece. Finally I found the correct angle Thermostat Housing from another 360 in a wrecking yard.

I'll agree with D-BO. My VDO although China puts out excellent, sounds like a whirlwind on high. I am satisfied with now but like so many others I would prefer to buy USA.

Got the 4 Seasons motor and it seems to have been equipped with a very large vent hole that the original motor doesn't, going to install tomorrow. No plugs came with it but I don't plan on doing any deep water fording as we did in the Marine Corps. However, the 4 Seasons motor and it's configured like the one on the right;



and while the relief for the motor on the left is 3 1/4" (firewall hole) the one on the left has that steel collar, lacking a set of calipers does anyone know the dimension of this type of motor with the steel collar?

Thanks and a lift of the lynch lid for any responses.

Today 01:22 PM

655-1039 is for the motor. Do you have the core number.

Yeah that NAPA 655-1039 is pretty much awesome. Again temp today in Corado at 0530 this morning 5 degrees... Temp inside my Jeep because of this blower motor 10000 million. I burned up. I am dead now.

woops just realized nichboy wanted the part number for the heater core not the blower motor. I actually just got the heater core at advanced auto because they had that in stock and not the blower motor. I can get the number for you later (it's at home), but it is a direct replacement. All I did was ask for a heater core for a 1985 Jeep CJ7 with a 258 and they gave me the heater core for it. The blower motor is the one from the chevy blazer and that is the 655-1039 part number we are talking about.

turbogus just put the collar on after you slide it through the hole because it will be easier to seal the gap around the opening. If you make the hole big enough to fit the collar also, then you will have a much larger gap to try and seal. The collar is snug but with effort it comes on and off.

Thanks D-BO, hope to pick up both tonight. But can't swap until spring. Having to much fun with all the snow were getting.

I shied away from the NAPA motor on account it's made in China and I've had issues with other 'Made in China" parts.

Yeah turbogus I don't blame you. I hate having to buy stuff made in China, but it is hard not to. It seems like almost everything is made in China, and in my case I needed to install the heater that night because it has been so cold here. So I just got what they had in stock.

nichboy this only took me a few hours so if you have a garage and some time you should just go for it. It will make the snow more tolerable. I am also not that great of a mechanic or anything and it wasn't as bad as I thought.

Update uhhh! That Autozone "Made in China" heater aluminum core is not up to spec! The core frame is correct but the core itself appears at least one row thinner! Got a copper core one coming on the truck from NAPA. Damm just like the hilarious home videos with the reporter Nick Poppendaddi and the panda that bites and eats him on Robot Chicken "You just can't trust the Chinese"

... and NO I do not mean this as racist, just a correlation.
