Ken McClead Posted August 10, 2022 Share Posted August 10, 2022 I obtained this fan the other day, and when I got home with it, I began to disassemble it to go over the mechanical and electrical parts to make sure everything was working as it should. My first problem was that the fan shaft bearings were very rough sounding when I turned the blade by hand. I began to remove the bearings from the shaft, but could not get the one closest to the fan blade off. I then proceeded to remove the fan blade, but one of the set screws holding the blade onto the shaft had seized and I could not break it loose. I then had to resort to more drastic measures to remove the blade by drilling two holes down the shaft to break the blade free. I ordered a new belt, bearings, and a shaft to replace the worn and damaged parts. I will begin to reassemble the fan once all parts come in. I have a couple of questions regarding reassembly. When I install the bearings should the grease fitting face away from the belt or toward the belt, also which way should the oil ports on the motor face. I do not know who made this fan, but once I get it running it should blow some serious air. Here are some pictures to help out. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
