A/C-Heater blower motor fix

I have replaced the brushes in two 44 chassis cars, a 5KQT and 200-20V.
The big PITA is the R &R of the heater box containing the heater core and
the blower.  Bentley covers this pretty well in a superficial manner.
The first time it takes about a day each side of the blower repair for the
R & R.  Requires lots of cursing and beer.

Order the brushes and have them on hand before you start the job.
The brushes are 5/16"sq. x .5"lg. w/1" lead.  I found them in 6/'96 at
Helwig Carbon Co. in NYC 414-354-2411.  Their part #52H, about $1.25 each.

Have fun!
