Stove Exhaust Vent

'64 Overlander: Help - need to replace the "squirrel cage" part of the exhaust vent above the stove. The motor itself works great, but the plastic "squirrel cage" (fan blade) completely broke off where it attached to the motor. I'll try and post a picture later if needed, but it's oem, so someone here has probably had the same issue come up. I tried searching the threads, but didn't come up with anything. Anyone know where I can find a replacement?

A pic might help. I thought in the older models the fan blades were always metal. Have you checked with inland RV ? My stove vent fan was MIA in my Caravel so I put a computer fan in there. Works great and it is an easy fix.

Here's some photos - I don't know if you can see it all that well, but it's the plastic fan/vent/squirrel cage inside the unit that needs replaced

The pics helped. I have something very different from what you have. It seems like I saw a place that you can get those from. I can't remember at the moment. Maybe someone else on here knows about a place to get those.

Just a thought, what about a metal one out of a car heater from a junkyard ?

Might work if it was the same size, I still have to pull it out to get a complete measurement. The whole unit sits what I would call sideways, the part with the fan blade pushes down into the stove exhaust housing and is held in place by tension and one rivet. If it's not oem, then it's definitely an old replacement!
I'm having that part media blasted tomorrow to clean up the surface rust before I repaint it.

normal blower motor and cage!?

GreatP -

Seems like a normal blower motor and cage might work in the setting you have, as long as the fit doesn't have to be exact. There are likely a miriad of motor/cage combinations available at any salvage yard. Take your current motor - since it obviously fit - and see what you can get. Wouldn't guess more than a few bucks if you can make a commonly available choice work. Might be a work-around for your situation.

Let us know how it goes.

You could also try Grainger or McMaster-Carr. They have lots of items like this.
