I’m trying to figure out which oscillator shaft and worm gear will work in my Emerson 29668. It doesn’t have one currently it came without it and the oscillator box.

21666 is a big motor. The 29668 that I am aware of are a small motor. The shaft that runs from the blade with the worm gear in the gearbox is longer in the big motor.

The oscillator shafts with worm in the 12" or 16" small motor types should work.

The 29668 I have is a big motor.

The 29668 I have is a big motor would the 21666 oscillator shaft and worm work since they are both big motors?

Yes. If you have a restorable 21666, they are desirable.

I found the 21666 oscillator shaft and worm gear on antique fan parts and wanted to make sure it would fit my 29668 big motor before purchasing. Thanks for your help Russ. 

 I am waiting on 21666 from another AFCA member that I agreed to purchase. they are desirable for sure

Mmmmmm. 21666.... that fan makes my heart flutter. :D
Sadly I have a shell of a 29668(motor case, Oscillator set(minus arm), and base. One day!
Currently piecing a 27648(last big motor four pole) together slowly. 

The 29668 stator was used to save a more desirable fan(17666 surprisingly), but one day will find another stator for that 12" 6-wong fan and put the 29668 stator back.
