    Does anyone know how to remove the fan from the heater/blower motor on a 1964 Dodge 440? I do not have A/C.

    Have I stumped the community with this one?

    There is a blue ring that is at the base that attaches the whole assembly into the blower housing with 4 long screws. If both are press fitted to the motor, then if nothing else, I might, unless someone can tell me that I am wrong, try and pull the two parts from the motor itself.
    I see that the replacement motor is available on eBay, but without the fan, nor the blue ring that would be needed to once again assemble the whole thing together.

    I really am at odds with this one for sure.

    If nothing else everyone, Thank you for reading this post.

    Looks like the same as a '62. The service manual doesn't mention anything about replacing the motor, just how to remove the fan/motor assembly. However in the trouble shooting it mentions a loose Timmerman clip. That might be a clue. (Maybe the '64 manual might be updated to include replacing the motor.)

    If the clip is installed on the shaft to hold the fan to the shaft it looks like yours is already removed? Maybe spray a little penetrating oil on the shaft and fan and let it soak. Then using a flat punch just tap on the end of the shaft and see if it moves.
    Good luck.

    There is no mention of Timmerman clip in either the 1964 Dodge or Plymouth Technical/Service manuals. Maybe Chrysler made a change in the later year to the mounting of the fan.
    That being said, I am going to give your suggestion a go.
    I appreciate your helping in this and I'll let everyone know the results.
    Maybe it wii help some else in the future as i could not find any info on this on the internet when I did a google search.

    I too did a pretty good Google search and came up "O". Even tried the 1962-1965 Mopar site. Wish they had a search engine. Looked through pictures for '62 '65 blower fans and motors. Found a 1962 blower/motor assembly on ebay with it mostly taken apart but not enough detail.

    Don't hammer on it too hard! If anything here's another bump for your thread thread :)

    Thank you once again.
    So you have a 1962 Dodge Polara 500?
    What are the particulars. engine, trans, color: interior/exterior?
    How long have you had it?
    My 1964 Dodge 440 is a 2 door sedan original 426 street wedge with a 4 speed, paint EE1 with a light blue interior. I've had it for over 40+ years and just now getting around to getting it back on the road once again. Engine & 4 speed done and installed, now the heat/blower & just electrical issues before paint and interior.

      I live in the desert, and if you water as necessary to retain a lush green lawn, well good luck with that water bill. LOL
      This restoration has taught me a lot.
      Glad you enjoyed the car and the pictures.

      " Solved! "
      There is a small hole in the fan where you have to use a Allen Hex tool to remove the small screw inside that holds the fan to the shaft. Using a small punch against the tip of the shaft, gently hammer it pushing it down through the fan. Using a 3/8 socket remove the nuts that holds the plate the blower motor by press against the shaft. I used a small press which worked well. This gives you access to the blower motor itself.
      I hope that this helps someone else with the removal of the fan and access to the motor itself.

      ? Question?
      Does anyone know who can rebuild the blower motor?

        So there is a set screw! Good info :thumbsup:

        Any electrical place should be able to rebuild your motor. Look for an older outfit that's been around for a long time in your area. I'd try that first before having to ship it out somewhere.

        Thanks for the update.

        Thanks to khryslerkid and the others that reached out to help.

        I failed to mention that among my waiting projects I have a 1962 Dodge 440 318 poly motor Station Wagon awaiting its turn.
