Can't for the life of me figure out why, but I'd just like to replace it with something newer and more reliable, so here's hoping someone might have a line on a newer replacement like the engine room blower fan from Dayton.

The squeal you are describing is fairly universal and should have resolved after you lubricated it. The bearing (if you can call it that is quite primitive) I noticed that the screeching stopped on the bench but when reinstalled it returned.

Try repositioning the assembly such that all of the attachments are neutral and not distorting in any one direction the housing...

Q: Did anyone find a source for the brushes (engine compartment blower motor or foootwell motor type)
