Has anyone found a source for the 1984 radiator fan motor? It is different than later models and I know I could just replace it with a newer type but this is for my Indy and I would like to keep it as stock as I can.

AC or not?
AC have 2 speed fan. Not has 1 speed fan.
2 speed "dead" can be resistor relay or switches for low speed. jump high speed switch to ground to check the motor.
If 2 speed replacement w/ 1 speed motor have to rewire the motor connection.

It turns out that the problem was that two of the magnets in the motor had come loose from the motor housing and were rubbing on the armature. The motor is built to be repaired, so I took it out of the shroud, removed the loose magnets and the armature. I cleaned the housing using some solvent and Scotch Brite and re-attached the magnets with super glue. After reassembly the motor works like a charm.

Now I have to find a spare.......

Maybe soon too.
Many "super glues" hate heat cycling and often fail. Can't handle parts expand/shrink at different rates. Many try fixing mirror buttons on windshields have same problem.
Some have "rubber" etc in them so the glue have some flex but doesn't always help.
