    My blower motor on the Ac is starting to make a screaming sound. Looking it up and some shows a single fan motor? I'm almost sure its a dual can motor? Would like to know before ordering one. Anyone know the blower motor # ?

    Last 6 of the vin, year and model. Paccar does a good job that way. The last 6 repeat over the years but with the year and model you should be good.

    Cannot help you with that number. Did you ask for a part number and the guys name so it would be easy to order if you decided you really needed it.
    I know it is not a farm tractor but one company has a parts catalog online. We can look at everything the parts counter person can, really? But it is good.
    Then you can google that part number and often find it for much less. Sometimes that works great. Other times I got hood struts that did not fit. Put a new water pump on an engine with a bare block overhaul. Got a call on that one. Bearings were losing balls into the oil system. They overnighted another one.
    Ordered a oil pressure sending unit for an N14 from a dealer. It cost $190.00. WOW. Searched that number on line and ordered one for $40.00. It worked great. The next day the gauge pegged out and bounced around at times. We only replaced it because it was leaking. Installed the Cummins unit and it is still working fine 2 years later.
    Those units looked totally identical: Same part number, made in Mexico. The $40 one was in a box with Asian writing. New guy said we can put the $40 one in the box from the dealer and send it back. NO!
    I do not know your exact year and model but some of those motors have some electronics in them. Others do not have any aftermarket competition and the dealer mantians high margins.
    Old sayings: You get what you pay for.
    Sometimes you get lucky.
    In the scope of what trucks cost that is not a lot. One of my previous cars was a Ford Maverick. Money was tight and I bought one from a junkyard. Had to take it out myself. Shortly thereafter it locked up. Went a few days wiping the windshield down. Crack the windows and wear gloves, heavy jacket and a sock cap.
    Drove with one hand on the wheel and the other between the opposite thigh and the seat. Then swap off. I was getting back and forth to work OK until there was a freezing rain. Had to hold my head out the window seeing to get back home. It was not far.
    Bought a new motor and the the junkyard guy gave me crap about returning my money. Should have came and got another one but it is screwed up because you said you put oil on the bearings. WD40 on the outside of an electric motor?
    Seams like some smart guy once said: Learn from the mistakes of others or you may not live long enough to experience much. Something close to that anyway.
    Best wishes in your choices.

    Most KWs I remember had a single motor with a shaft coming out both ends for dual squirrel cages

    Paid less than 200 last year for a new motor, both round blades, and the resistor at mhc in Jackson tn on a 95 t600

    Some of those motors have a sticker one them from Dot, Kysor, Behr and such. Often I can get them from a local auto parts suppliers.

    Jackson was where I called, quoted me $279. Motor with blades and new Resistor. Going to pull this one out Sat am. Thinking I found one at a parts store. $59. for the motor its self.
    Funny today Hauled 7 hours and motor was quite until the last load. But with the heat index around 110 sure not going to run without air.

    That’s crazy.... yeah can’t blame you I was half way between Nashville and Jackson when mine went out last year and it was hottttt. The good thing is once you replace it there will be a world of difference in the amount of air that come out those vents.
