Series Heater Blower

Hi all, has anyone attempted to use a Defender heater blower motor on a Series vehicle? As you know, the blower assembly is NLA and replacement motors are crazy money from the usual suppliers. Used motors will likely suffer the same fate as the 40 or 50 year old original.

This looks like a Kodiak Mark IV. Is that correct?

Can't get it rebuilt at a local electric motor shop?

Actually, this is the style used on late IIA NADA and SIII models. I used a SIII blower assembly on my 1969, and it fit perfectly. The Kodiak was a GREAT heater and I had one in my 1964 Safari. But you are right, they look similar. I am working on another 1969 that I acquired in September. The motor is fried.

This is what the Defender version looks like. The motor just unbolts from the flange. The dimensions of the fan appear to be the same. Although not cheap, this one is about half the price our friends at the usual suppliers charge. Might be worth the try.

I think this is a replacement for your blower motor.

Somewhere in my notes on the Kodiak Mk III (yes I put one in my build) is that the motor is similar or same as 50s Ford/Chevy. While Terriann's notes point to a Napa unit, (and links are given) if you can match the mounting stud spacing, motor size, rotation and shaft length then you are in pretty good shape.
