78-86 Jeep CJ and 87-90 Jeep Wrangler YJ Heater Blower Motor (Fan) Upgrade

As anyone with a CJ knows, the heaters, while great, still leave a bit to be desired. Later model jeeps, such as 91+ YJ's have a better heater blower motor, that pump a great deal of air through the small interior of a Jeep, but the CJ's utilize a fairly small blower motor. A very common, and some-what decently documented upgrade since the 80's has been using a larger blower motor from GM/Chevy. In my research, most use one from a "1973 Blazer" Where discrepancies come in play are that many say to search for vehicles "with A/C" whereas others state to search for vehicles "with out A/C." This topic is meant to help guide anyone looking for pictures, details, tips and tricks in completing this mod.

I did in fact use the blower motor from a 73 Blazer V8 with AC. It was a right fit, but it cleared the battery tray. I was fully prepared to need to cut the hole bigger using a large hole saw and block of wood, but the PO had either already cut it or the glass tub came with a hole large enough. Either way, it was a quick install for me and works great.
