Heater blower motor

The blower motor on my 77 cj5 went out. Tried napa and auto zone, both a no go. Anyone know where I might be able to get one. It is a 360, no air.
Thanks

When these break, most people recommend the upgrade to a chevy blazer motor. See this link: Jeep Heater Blower Motor Upgrade It looks like your 77 might or might not work for this depending on where the motor is situated. I have this in my 82 cj5 and it works well.

I also just did this. I could only find one replacement blower for $137 in state, so I decided to go with the $21 Chevy Blower instead.

Works Great!

As long as the blower motor goes through the firewall you can do this upgrde.

On a '77 the blower motor is in the passenger compartment. The Blazer upgrade will not work.

There's another active thread on either a '76 or '77 heater that has a suggested replacement.

We were going to do upgrade on my brother's 77 CJ 7. he has the motor through the firewall, same as my 78 CJ 5. Maybe the tub was swapped with a newer box by a previous owner. The condition the jeep was in I figured it was all stock.

for all of you who have done the blazer motor upgrade, my question is does the airflow improve dramatically for the defroster and heater? I just went through the first huge rainstorm of the year and my foggy windows reminded me of how crappy the stock system is...will I truly notice a difference? thanks in advance

Yes you will. It moves quite a bit more air.

IMHO it moves a LOT more air.

My defroster actually defrosts almost the whole window and not just the bottom inch.

On mine, LOW on the Blazer motor is about the same amount of air that HIGH was on the CJ motor.

Vibration? Bump steer? Wandering? Read the article (sticky) on Steering, suspension, and driveline.

I did mine 4 years ago but I'm pretty sure I used the same part as Mike. It's a Siemens motor. Be careful though, there are two part numbers that are similar and the motor's shaft is too long on one of them (squirrel cage hits the heater box housing).

Thanks for the replies. My blower motor does go through the firewall, so I will be getting the blazer motor. The body is fiberglass, so enlarging the hole should not be to bad. Do you think I should replace the heater core while I'm in there?
Thanks again
