The blade and front plate should come off allowing access to the motor interior. These are called "cap head screws" and are probably hardened.   From the slide-out cardboard drawers containing misc. hardware parts at many hardware stores.  The smaller size fits some of the smaller Emersons but not all.  The larger size fits the 12 and 16" Emersons.   I use two screws against the rotor and tighten them snugly but not with full force.   Make sure any screw you put into the rear of the motor will not hit any stator windings/wires.

This is probably from a 27646 Emerson
