Everyone needs to work on his/her Subaru Brat once in a while....assuming he/she owns a Subaru Brat. This is "MR B", my wee Subie 2 or 4 WD pickup. Neat little truck!
These are the parts---fan blade, motor ass'y and mounting shroud.
The sealed motor is NOT meant to be taken apart. So, of course, I took it apart. The shaft bushings--after only 182,000 miles--were dry. I cleaned up the armature, the shaft, the bushings and the four wee brushes, lubed the bushings and put it back together again. Works like a champ.
The assembly, ready to go back into MR B. Good to go for another 182,000 miles. See how much fun it is to work on your Subaru!
