Pulsating heater blower question

There is usually a chance that both brushes are not warn equally, and a toss 
of the coin as to if it is the one closer to where the "L" shaped air 
cooling tube attaches. On an '86q, I was able to get another four months of 
good usage out of the original blower by pressing on the brush holder and 
pushing it closer to the armature. It got me past the coldest winter months 
into early summer.
