RE: [Chrysler300] 300 factory air blower motor

Hello All,

My fan motor on 1963 Chrysler 300 Conv is noisy on high speeds upon start up in cold weather.  If I let it run on low speed, then switch to high speed after 5 min or so, the sound reduces to almost nothing.  I don?t use the fan in the summer (convertible), only in the winter (dry pavement run) for heat and defrost.

Has anyone found out that a 57 year old motor may just need some oil (or other lubrication) and be less noisy considering it really has not been used much in 57 years?
If so, any suggestions?

Mark Lindahl

Hi Allan;
Over  the years, I have found that the motors  are mostly the same for many makes and models
The fan speeds are controlled by the switch. Mounting may vary.
Take  the motor to your parts store, the older the store and counter help, the better.
Have them check with their stock, and catalogs. Usually in the $15-20 range..
Let us know, Ray

Greeting all factory air 300 owners! May I ask if anyone has gone down the blower motor replacement avenue? I dismantled my interior yesterday getting the 950 heater plenum out of my 300 K to service the squealing blower motor. Seats,console out.

I find that the air conditioned cars show a different blower motor that the regular heater cars. Motor # 1879 579 shows up for Chrysler and also Dodge/Plymouth AC cars in 1964. This number is also good back to 1961 for AC cars. I checked the MOPAR cross reference chart and find nothing regarding the AC motors.

I have searched for this number online and find nothing. I did find a reference come up on a Hemmings page referring to a report from November 2011 giving a cross reference and substitution list for all MOPAR blower motors. The data is no longer showing on the web page.

Can I ask if anyone has a Hemmings subscription and would kindly search this article out? The Hemmings web page is:
Click on the link and you will go here:

I'd like to get a new replacement sooner rather than much later as with my getting my old motor rebuilt. Not sure anyone would replace the bushings, and I don't know the condition of the armature shaft. I don't want to do this again!

If that is my only option, well all righty then!

Ray Jones. Y'all come on down an see us. Ya hear?
