Hello all, I have this emerson 77646AA that was missing the brackett on the back of the motor that the head wire goes into, I have ordered new plastic grometts from Daryl Hudson but he does not have the bracket at this time, no one has responded on the buy sell or trade forum either, does any one have a picture so I can get an idea of how to make one? I have run a search but got several error codes.

Thanks in advance.

I am currently charging my batteries for my camera and will take a closer picture or two of the bracket that the grommet screws into.

In the mean time you can go to the following link to see the backside of my un-restored 73668 where the bracket is visible. It is simply just an oval shaped piece of metal with a place for two screws to attach it to the motor housing and a place for a grommet to fit through the middle. I have not seen what the bracket looks like on your more modern emerson but I bet it is very similar.

Hey Thanks alot, I have an idea now, I have made a cover plate out of some old copper plate, and since I see in the pic, that a portion sticks out that the plactic gromitt screws into I will see if I can find a end cap for copper water pipe and drill that out and soulder that to the cover plate I made might not look good but be funtional.

 

Thanks and God bless.

Those re-chargable batteries aren't working. I'm going ot pick up some fresh alkaline batteries for my camera today and show you better views.
I have it un-screwed from the housing now and will show you what it looks like front and back and a bit of the original way emerson has it tied off inside. the reason for the bracket I'm told is so it would be easy to replace the head wire without having to take the whole motor apart. There is a good half inch of wires behind the plate just enough to carefully cut and splice.

Ok I have some pictures. my camera is very cheap and they aren't very clear but it should give you enough insight. the side with a slit instead of a screw hole should be on the right hand side and not the left but the bracket is upside down in the picture.

Also something you should know is that the part where the grommet fits in is threaded. and it comes right through the center until the butt end of the grommet is about level with the flat part of the plate. from there there is something wrapped tightly around the wires to make them nice and stiff and to not move around and rub on anything (that much should be clear from the pictures.

here are the links to the pictures:

Thank you very much, maybe I will try and find a brass nut that the gromitt will screw into instead of the end cap. I may just have to paint it when I am done as with a bead of solder on it I would look tacky. Maybe one day I will find the correct part, maybe that will teach me to ONLY buy compleat fans in the future.

Thanks and God bless.
