WTB early 924 parts

I really need a working blower motor WITH A/C off an 1976-1977 924 Porsche. The "early" cars have a unique motor only found on those years. Please please help, this is really holding up my restoration. I need to finish her so I can take her to "Werks" this year.

So after much searching I am still empty handed. A couple of people from both the UK and Italy have offered to sell me parts. But are unable (magically) to email me a pic of the part they have. (Scam)
Please see the attached pics for the burnt out blower motor that was removed from my car. I really need this part to finish my restoration. I hope to display my car at "The Werks" Porsche show at Monterey this year. But lots more work to be done!

my 78 had the same one. It is listed in PET illustration 813-20. According to that, the part number is 843 819 021.

This website states that it is the same as 74-77 dasher w/ac. http://www.partsbase.org/parts/vw-843819021/


This guy has a dasher that he is parting: http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=615006

You might send him a pic to see if it really is the same. I did something totally different, based on lack of availability and what I have been told that this setup has a poor output.

This motor had caused me a lot of distress too. Mine wasn't working when I got the car. I think some vendor wanted a couple hundred dollars for one. I only paid 650 for the car, lol.

What I first tried was a GM blower motor with another blower wheel. The testing I did with it in the heater box showed an extremely poor output. It made a lot of noise but didn't do much at all.

I am not an engineer, but I am convinced that using a blower wheel to really pressurize the heater box is not good way. I think a fan like in the non-a/c cars would have been better. The fact that there is a baffle between the motor and the heater core was not good either. The air has to flow around a 180 degree turn to hit the heater core.

Now maybe it would have been good for a/c, since the blower wheel is approximately in line with the vent outlets, I don't know. But as you know, our early cars do not have a separate condenser blower. So it has to suck the air out of the condenser, travel along the air duct/cover, and down into the blower motor to be distributed out the vent outlets.

Mk1

DO a search web for Images : MK1 VW Blower
I think the early 477 late 70- 80s VW Rabbit Blower will work.

I got one of the early Rabbit blowers and put it in my housing, mine was the non AC window fan blade version. It has a full housing so is a really ugly fit. I had to cut away much of the plastic that holds the housing together and fasten it together with aluminum strapping and screws as I couldn't find any glue or epoxy to work, it must be something like polypropylene or polyethylene that glue doesn't like much. I wrote up a how to for the 924.org. Let me emphasize again it got really ugly, but it was do it or go without. On the plus side, a stock 944 blower cover does fit and conceal all the tackiness, and it does supply a good amount of air.

I could email you pictures it the "how to" doesn't supply enough.

As an adder, as least the VW blower is cheap, I recall about $25, so its not great loss if it turns out to be a throw away.

blower

One here $25 looks to be in Canada so shipping is a little more...
