    Old BELCO window Fan rebuild/rework project

    Well I’m not sure if I should call this a restore project or not anyway I found this ole fan in a yard sale
    For 20 bucks about 3 years ago so I bought it to use in the shop looked rough when I bought but worked pretty good not sure how old it is but it moves lots of air and is reversible as well.

    but last year it starts to get a little noisy and found that the pulley on the motor is worn and springs were rusted away that push the two halves together so belt is a bit noisy so decided to tear it completely down sand blast it and repaint it, but figured I put pic’s from beginning and post pic’s after its finished.

    Any way it’s been a good old fan so I figure I could give it a face lift and a few more years of pushing air through the doors.

    up date

    Ok Well Here is a little up date on the progress of dismantling and blasting.

    I still have to blast the main cage but that’s tomorrow pending weather but was curious
    About this new ospho, the supplier said it should only be used on rusted metal
    In order to etch it properly and should not be used on clean fresh metal so going to let the pieces set over night a day or two And get some light rust and then treat the pieces. Then repaint once etched
