Thank PhatBasturd....Now the question is whether to switch it to the newer style or get a ccw motor. I've got 2 '78 parts Jeeps and between the two of them I think I've got all the parts to switch the heater over to the newer style. I know it would be a lot easier to just get the ccw motor and that's what I think I want to do, but does the newer style work any better (enough to justify all the work)? If so, I might try to switch it otherwise, I'll just exchange the motor

JP - I'm in the same boat that you are in with the odd ball in-cab blower. I'm considering the Mohave option myself, but will probably go the CCW route. Just hasn't been a priority for me (yet).

OK all. I got it today. Been a hectic week. It fits perfectly! Napa part 655-1039. No more guessing for anyone who comes across this thread. Tomorrow I'll cut the hole and finish the job (hopefully).

Instead of the mojave, consider the Heater Craft. It puts out twice the BTU's that the Mojave does.

I got a ccw and am in the process of installing it. I got the mounting plate drilled out, but when I put the squirrel cage on for the test fit, the shaft is too long (like using the pm105 on firewall side heaters)

The part number is Siemens PM106X (Napa p/n 655-1005). Does any know the p/n for the shorter shaft?

scratch that last post....I did some measuring and realized I have to have the mounting plate from the heater box in front of the mounting plate for the motor.Just thought it would have looked cleaner the other way

The blower works great. Got it in New Years Day. Heat is not as intense but I think I may have some airlock plus everytime you move those heater core hoses around you need to play with them. Or it could be perception on my part. This upgrade is so built up that I may have been expecting a jet blower. But its definitely better and for what I spent worth the time and money.

JP - How did it turn out? Did you use PM106X?

Yeah, I used the the pm106x, but had to make a 3/8" spacer for the fan to fit. Not sure how it works yet because I had to order a rheostat switch from a local electric motor shop and with the holidays and all, it hasn't gotten here yet. Should be in either this afternoon or tomorrow. I'll let yall know how it is as soon as I get it hooked up.

The switch finally came in today. Installed the switch and discovered the fan was still hitting the back of the heater box. Made a 1/4" spacer to go on top of the 3/8 just to make sure it worked, so 5/8" total (probably could have gotten with 1/2" though) Tight clearance on between the motor and glove box, but it works really well. It moves alot more air than stock. I'll really find out how well it works tomorrow night after I finish swapping in the D44 rear
