I have found Emerson 79648 AX fan at the scrap yard. I have it apart ready to clean but have a couple problems.The fan blade is loose on the hub. I tried tapping the crimp ,but did not help. I don't know what to try next.
The oscillator cap is broken I hope to make a new part, but I don,t know what it looked like or how it worked.
Enclosed a photo of cap. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks Ken

Hi Ken, for that oscillator wheel, it’ll be easier to find a good used one than try to make one.  If you look on the opposite side shown in your photo, then hold the body of the assembly then twist the knurled rim. You should see the threaded hole that the oscillator arm attaches to, move from the center to a point toward the outside of the wheel.  
This is how you adjust how far the fan swings when it oscillates. If the hole is in the center, it will not oscillate, and if at the edge of the circle, it’s at full swing.  

I hope that helps you out.  

If you post a pic of the blade you’re looking for in the Buy sell trade forum, someone may have one to offer.  I’d have to look, but I might have a spare blade and oscillating wheel. If you’re interested, PM me and we can discuss details.  

Best of success with the restoration!

Hi Ken. I believe I have the oscillator cap you are looking for. I’ll post a picture of it tonight when I get home. It’s yours (free) if it’s the right one.

Is this the part that goes on that fan? I can't hardly tell from looking at your broken piece. Perhaps some of our other members can tell.

Yes, that’s it. His was a later pot metal one but the cast iron one should fit fine. Hopefully he has the oscillator arm.

The oscillator looks the same other than the material it is made from. Should I seal the gear box at the motor? I have it cleaned, greased and instaled, but did not put a sealer where it bolts to motor. I have to wait for warmer weather to paint so I have time to take it apart again if it should be sealed. Thanks to everyone for the help I've been given Ken

No sealer is used at the gearbox motor interface.  Just clean and install the gearbox.
