My a/c fan on the 67 is differant than yours but.... I took my motor clear off washed the whole thing in auto parts washer, let it soak in the solvent a bit then blew dry and disassembled to lube the non lubable bushing. So far so good. Adios, John

It might now be the same issue, but on my 1976 Sovereign the old Armstrong AC when we first got would turn on but no air, or very little air came out of the vent. After doing about what you have done already I discovered that the squirrel cage blower that you can access from the inside was just spinning on the motor shaft. The allen screw that held it in place had loosened. After tightening this the blower and AC worked fine for a few more years. I replaced it with a new Carrier 15,000 btu unit.

I guess we're one of the lucky ones....our Armstrong is still cranking out ice-cold air. We've had to replace two electrical parts, one in 2006 and one in 2007, but other than that it's been very dependable, knock on wood.

Well at last we think this will work...An AC friend downtown gave me a bottle of 'Zoom Spout' -Finest all purpose TURBINE OIL- and I dragged my poor bones back up on the roof and with the telescoping nozzle gave it a real good oiling from outside of it to every possible inside orifice...got Angel to finger turn it down below while I did this...and It worked! $$$$ Save Save Save!....Here's a picture of the bottle. Whats pretty neat about it- is that it has a telescoping plastic flexible tube that extens about ten inches.

Any updates on your ac blower motor, is it still working or did you have to replace the motor.
