Default BLOWN FAN MOTOR!

Stranded on the side of the road near Fountain, FL in front of the Dollar General at FL 167 and US 231. I can see that the seal actually popped out of the motor housing and is freewheeling around on the shaft. I don't know what would cause this, the motor was 100% brand new and shouldn't have seen that kind of pressure. My spare motor is at home and I can have it overnighted somewhere, but I fear I didn't bring enough tools to do this.

Andy:

Try reaching out to Stephen Mahan. I believe his home base is in Lynn Haven, FL; about 30 miles from your location. He may be able to assist you with resources.

Working on getting the parts shipped first, and getting a rental car since we are toadless. Gotta get a toad, no question!

I think the Mahans were headed for Coachcraft.

I need 3 of those stackable hydraulic filters, NAPA 7196 and others. I cannot find anything in stock to ship overnight online. Any ideas?

I've got my reman'd old motor, the single tall filter and o-ring coming overnight.
