Use a drift punch, through the vent holes, just don't damage the motor winding's. Be patient it will come out. I would also remove the ID badge before trying to remove the motor. Sometimes those screws can be touching the motor.

Thanks, I will give it a try. I already took off the tag.  How you reinstall?  Will it slide back in?

You will probably have to tap it back in. Do not get any paint on the inside of the housing.

If I have a stuck rotor, I try the PVC pipe trick - gently! If that doesn’t work, then I spritz some PB Blaster around the inside of the housing, where the stator comes into contaft with the walls, and try the PVC pipe again. If that doesn’t work, then into the freezer for a few hours, followed by the heat gun. I’ve been able to remove four stuck stators from stamped steel housings in these ways, and I’ve only been working with fans a few months now.

Nice find. Would be great if one could find that tool. I know someone did make a homemade puller which worked really well. There is a thread on here about it.

If the housing gets slightly bent the fan will never run properly again.

I had the same concern about warping the housing  I think I'm going to take the he'll out of the stator and carefully strip and paint with it in place.

A little heat may be better than freezing and heating .
just hot enough  that you don't want to touch it should be enough.
