I need instructions on how to remove the blade.  Also, where can I buy a 2.7 MFD 220 Vac for the same fan?

Check ebay for the capacitor. To get the blade off you need it stick a small screwdriver through the back of the motor housing and stop the rotor from turning, then spin the blade clock wise and it will come off. Be careful not to damage the stater winding's when you  put the screwdriver in the motor.

The 79648-BB is, I believe, a government 2 bearing fan wherein the blade is held on with a set screw and not the screw on blade design.

A pic would be helpful.

Yes pics would be good, I was thinking BB was brass blade if that is part of the serial number that would be different.

An AP-G suffix would be a government fan. My research shows the BB was made in 1955 way after the government fans made in the 1940's.

All my government fans are -apg. 

Post pics of the fan and then we can help you better instead of guessing.

Thank you, Don.  I will try the small screwdriver knowing to be very careful.  Also, will look at Ebay. Blair

Is that your fan in the picture? If it is, then the screwdriver instruction DOES NOT APPLY here.
