Hi,

Some time ago ( 5 or 6 months ) there was a new old stock heater blower motor on eBay ( just the motor ) been trying to find the seller but I can’t search back that far. Bit of a long shot but did anyone else see it or more so the sellers id.

In the past I have found google images to show expired auctions but I can’t find this one,
Can anyone help? It’s a brand new unit I’m after.

Thanks,

Chris.

I don't know anyhing about the auction, never saw it myself.

But I have to ask, WHY do you want a brand new one? In all my years with Dolomites, i've never known a blower motor to fail, the rheostat yes, i've changed a few of those, a motor, never! I probably have 3 or 4 serviceable motors in stock now. I never even bother to advertise them cos i've never been asked for one!

Steve,

Mine was well rusty, I tried taking it apart, the drum broke for starters!
I’ve gone to the effort of sandblasting the casing and repainting it all, so nice shiny new motor would look great and that’s it really.

I think they're the same as a series 3 Land Rover if that helps.
