The motor needs to be replaced. The problem is that I cannot seem to break the blower wheel loose from the motor shaft. I have the new motor sitting on my bench so I can see which direction I need to turn the motor to break the blower wheel loose. I just cannot seem to do it. Even with a breaker bar on the ratchet to give me more leverage. I can of course cut the wheel off, but then I just have the added expense of buying another wheel. As always any help is greatly appreciated, and maybe I'll learn something too.

Some are just married together.
Cut it, break it, smash it....is likely your only option.

Somehow I was afraid that would be the answer. Thanks jeff1 for letting me know I might as well just get it on and get it over with. Well at least I had a break for awhile. Tomorrow it is on.

It is what it is Jeff. Cut it off this morning and installed a new one along with the motor. Running like brand new now. Hmmm. With all new parts it had damn well better be. :)
