assembling today. Keeping fingers crossed 900 1992

Dear muskox37,

Hope you're well. I use MEK (methylethylketone) to clean metal before applying sealants or adhesives. MEK removes old glues, paint, grease, dust, etc.

However, MEK is highly flammable and carcinogenic, so I use it sparingly. As most do not want to handle MEK (a chemical cousin of acetone), I think brake cleaner is a good way to remove grease, dust, etc.

To avoid hammering on the metal tabs, that secure the blower motor's end-plate, it might be possible to use a vise-grip pliers, with jaws that open to the extent needed. A standard vise-grip pliers doesn't open far enough. A "wide-mouth" vise grips can apply a lot of pressure slowly and so carefully.

A bench vise can do this, if its jaws will open far enough to accept the motor's casing. Turning the vise's handle should slowly force the end-plate's tabs inwards (towards the center), securing the end-plate to the casing.

Hope this helps.

Yours faithfully,

Spook
