I’d like to remove the oscillator collar from an Emerson 71666, and it seems one way to do this is to separate the motor housing from the neck of the base.  I looked inside the housing, and it appears the end of the joint between the two parts is swaged such that the surface of the joint is flared at the inner wall of the housing.  Is this how the factory joined the two parts, and if so, what’s the best way to remove the oscillator collar?
Thanks.

When you remove the oscillator linkage from the oscillator wheel, you back out the two large screws on top of the base that hold the pivot knuckle in place. Once backed out you can pull the fan motor shaft out of the base. It is then you back out the two front screws of the oscillator collar. Once they are backed out, pull back on the collar adjuster pin and pull the collar up and off she should come.
