My first fan was an Eskimo and my 2nd restoration is a Westinghouse 16SD3 and wow what a difference in quality!The paint on the SD3 has really been compromised and it looks as though I'll need to repaint but I simply cannot remove the motor from the chassis. There are 2 screws on the front half of the chassis and they appear to be holding the motor in place but any unscrewing simply results in a slowly spinning screw. I'm quite sure I'm missing something. I've attached a pic.
Thanks in advance! My other two projects are an antique GE and the classic all-aluminum Vornado

Those "screws" on the front of those motors are just retaining pins that are being used to hold the motor into place, the motor is actually removed from the back of the motor housing (behind the rear cover) and there are some retaining nuts that are attached to those retaining pins that go through the front cover that look like screws and when you remove those retaining nuts and washers then you can safely remove the motor from the housing.
Hope this helps.
