The one I did recently cost me $125 or so.

Two bearings and some labor to pull and press, plus a quick test. Worked like new afterward.\

A few hundred bucks at most to get the bearings replaced at a motor shop.  Likely it’ll be done in a day or two.

I have a Harris HT-10 transmitter that has a tired blower motor. I am hearing bearing noise coming from the blower. The transmitter has been in service since 1993 and I have an even older HT-10 in service at another facility. Gates Air wants almost 4200.00 for a replacement motor. The lead time is four weeks. I was able to do some research and found a vendor that will sell me a blower for 2400.00 with about the same lead time. 

Still way to much $$$$.

Here is my question for the brain trust. 
Does anyone have a spare motor sitting on a shelf that are willing to part with for a reasonable amount?
Has anyone successfully rebuilt the original blower motor?
Has anyone successfully retrofitted a different less costly blower into an HT-10?
