57 T-Bird Parts Needed

PostBy: Dann757 On: Fri May 18, 2012 3:31 pm

Hello everybody.
A friend is restoring a 57 T-Bird, and he gave me the fan/blower motor to look at. It needs brushes. I have all the specs. I got it working pretty good by putting tiny spacers in the brush holders to get good spring-loaded contact with the commutator- for now.

Anybody know where I can order a set of brushes???


thanks,

Dan

Don't know if he can help you or not. At least it might be worth a phone call.
