I have been working on restoring an 86 350, when I tried to put direct power to the cooling fan all I heard was a click. It was seized solid, since I was getting sick of buying parts for it I thought I would give it a go. Motors usually have screws or tabs but this one did not, easily opened with a flat head screwdriver.




Looked pretty crusty but there was still lots of life left in the brushes. Used a wire brush for the heavy rust then soaked the parts in vinegar for a couple hours, they cleaned up pretty good. Oiled the bushings then put it back together, purrs like a new one now. It only took an afternoon,didn't cost me anything & still OEM made in Japan. Just thought this could help someone save a few $ someday, I think you could do this to most fan motors out there.
