I need a head wire cover, restraint, keeper for my Emerson 29646. The part that has 2 screws and whatever went inside to keep the headwire put. My fan is complete but for that.

Honestly, you need a new headwire at the least, and a new lead(main wire). Trying to save the headwire on that fan is pointless considering it is one of the easier ones to change.

That fan is screaming for a complete re-paint and polish. But, looking at your "avitar" photo, maybe just screaming... :D

Hi Alex,

It will get all new wire when I get into it. I need whatever keeps the wire secure. It has 2 screws that fasten it to the motor housing. That is the part I need. What we see in the picture is a rubber gromet and the 2 screws that are not doing anything.
Thank you, Dale

I wasn't feeling well when we took that picture, feeling much better now, but look abut the same. I build a small powder coating oven just for projects like this, and this fan will be its first use.

I think a lot of modifications have been made here. I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that threaded "Bakelite" grommets would be correct for that fan. I just looked at one of my original condition 29646s, and that's what it has. Darryl Hudson has them.

Also, this fan is not from post-1950; probably from the late 20s-early 30s. Give us a close-up of the I.D. plate.

That fan will look great in fresh powdercoat. You going with black, or some custom color?


P.S. Hit up AFCA member Tony Clayton for new wire, he custom-makes it, great stuff!

Yes, I posted in the wrong place. Still finding my way. It will be black. All the other gromets in this fan were screw in. It is in the cleanup tank right now getting de-gunked. Tx, Dale

On those models, the screw in grommet screws into a flange which is held on by the two small screws you see. The idea behind this vs the earlier ones with the round hole, was you can replace the headwire by removing the flange, & pulling the headwire out through the larger opening not having to dismantle the fan & remove the stator.

If you try to pull the “replaceable” headwire out of the hole as Stan is suggesting, warm them inside the hole with a heat gun before pulling them out. It’ll make them more flexible.  They’ll harden again when they cool, so you’ll have to rewarm then to put them back into the hole.  And then, be slow and steady. These are old wires.
