Can anyone help me with the removal of the exhaust fan over the stove in my 1967 Safari? I am a new AS owner as of one week ago (no longer an SOB). I have removed all screws underneath but it feels like the vent is solidly attached through the skin. I took off the exterior vent cover but that did not help. Could it be riveted in??

Also, I am going to clean it, sand it, treat the rusted areas and paint it. Any suggestions on paint to handle heat?

The Safari is in good clean original shape so my plan is pull everything out and clean, buff, refinish, new flooring and touch up. I'm sure I will have more questions. Next stop removing and cleaning the original furnace....

Thanks for any help!

New Year Cheers, Tom

Hi Tom,
When I pulled out mine in my '68 GT it was just slid into the vent, a part of the full assembly it was attached to the cabinet itself. I was able to bench the entire assemby, clean it, scuff it and rustoleum it. Came out great. If the fan is inop it is possible to just replace the motor. Go ahead and just tug on it a bit, it should slide out. Mine did. Hope that helps. Remember to find the wiring, usually in the back of the overhead cabinet and separate the leads.

Welcome to the Forum
I did the same treatment to my í67 Globetrotter. I remember the vent with the flap and duct came out with the range hood.
I honestly donít remember any extra rivets or screws holding anything to the inner or outer shell.
I do remember it was a very tight fit. I donít think the outer grill is part of the ductwork.
As for paint I used a regular Rustoleum or Kryon almond spray paint. There isnít enough heat coming off the stove to cause any paint issues.
Sorry, thatís all I can come up with for now.

Good Luck,

Due to your encouragement that is was just a tight fit, I got aggressive. It was very tight in the interior skin and there was a retainer ring on the outside end of the exhaust tube. As I pulled and rocked it back and forth from inside the retainer ring popped off (I didn't know until I found in lying in the driveway). It is now out so I can get after it!! I will try to post a photo of the re-finished installation.

Cheers, Tom Worth

Good job Tom, I don't remember the fan in the 67 having a retaining ring but it was a tight fit.

Looking forward to more updates.

1. Stripped, metal prep treated, primed and painted. New fan motor with cleaned blades.
2. Remounted. It was a really tight fit and had to muscle it back in.
3. From exterior
4. With grill and trim ring mounted. Next to put the vent cover back on....

Thanks for the encouragement and help, Tom
