So my understanding is that you have an A/C blower in a non-AC car.

Thanks .

Default You're right

That's what it looks like to me. How hard is it to find a blower motor for a non air car? Also how hard are radiators to come by, I'm afraid I'm going to need one of those fairly soon. While I'm asking questions, where do I look for the multi bladed fan(I can't remember if it was 7 or 9 blades) that work better than the original 4 bladed unit?
Thanks.
Joe

Blower motors for non-A/C cars are much easier to find than ones for A/C cars. Does your motor work?

Default working motor

The motor seems to work fine. I've really only used it once and I'm new to TBirds so I don't really know what to expect. High range doesn't blow hard but it does blow warm air.

These blower motors do not blow with the strength if modern motors.

My blower, with AC, is pretty noisy! Common? Works well, but I have no radio to drown it out ! Been considering replacing it, but you say it's hard to find one?

My blower is not noisy (430 with A/C) on low or high.

The squirrel cage may be rubbing against the inside of A/C shroud. I think that you can pull the motor and cage easily. Then you can check the cage for rubbing marks, and also run the motor to see if it's the motor itself. Just a thought.
