Well.. that's okay. It did take me forever to get that c-clip on. I got the
blower motor alligned the first time though. Looking at the design of it,
neither I nor my physics major pal could figure out how it ended up aligned. I
just alligned the hole in the motor (cooling?) with the hole in the black
plastic housing, then slipped it in. Voila. I think my problem with the c-clip
was a bad tool. The clip ate three metal bits designed specifically for c-clips
and made by Craftsman!
