I'm putting back together an Emerson 29646.  I just need to reassemble the blades.  I noticed if I tighten down the slotted nut at the end of the rotor, it locks the rotor from spinning.  Is that normal, or did I forget something?  Do you leave it slightly loose before screwing on the blade hub?  (photo from another user shows what I'm talking about)  Thanks.
Just to share,
"Krylon KSCS029 Short Cuts Gold Leaf" & "Dupli-Color DE1635 Semi-Gloss Back Engine Paint"  aerosols are just about perfect matches for the original colors.

Take out a fiber washer on the rotor:up:
Or may need to tap the main bearing forward if you tapped on it to get the stator out

I think the only reason your rotor might not be spinning is you have too many fiber washers behind and in front of it. The rotor should be in the center of the stator with a little play back and forth. I don't think that nut can be over tightened. Good luck

That front nut needs to be snugly tight.   I use two common screwdrivers, one in each side of the slot to tighten.

Strange. I took out the fat washer that went between the rotor and back housing and now it's a perfect fit with the slotted nut tightened down. So much for putting things back the way they were. Love extra parts when I'm done.

Apart from that extra washer, it's works great.  Just need to do a little paint polish and wax.  Apologies for the dirty iphone lens.

And one for that back.  Not bad for my first fan.  The bottom was a bucket of rust.

Ehren:

Most of the Emerson fans I've worked on had one shim at the back and two at the retaining nut. You want that nut snug.
