Hello fellow collectors. I recently acquired the fan below (mainly for the six wing blade). It wasn't running. I believe that one of the wires at the back of the stator is broken off since no power is getting to the stator. The stator is press fit into the case and before I attempt to remove the stator to repair the wires, I thought I would get some pointers on how best to do it. This is a centrifugal start fan. I wonder if the case can be expanded with heat to facilitate removal? Suggestions? I read Darrell Koller's post using a six inch gear pulley puller which is very clever. Is there an easier (cheaper) way to do this?

Never mind folks....There is a wealth of information about how to do this in several posts. I'm going to try the method that involves drilling a slightly larger hole on two of the rear holes that the long pins go through and then slightly tap, using a center punch, the stator to ease it out. The gear pulley method seems like the best way to do this if you want to spend $50 to $60 bucks for the pulley and metal plate.

Removal.”? I want to get mine out of a 1914 Westy, but it’s proven very difficult.Thanks and cheers!

I've put smaller fan motors in the freezer over night. Just a little tap tap and they pop out. This has helped me
