    If your reading this you are most likely aware that the blower wheel is made of plastic and warps. Finding an
    exact replacement is almost impossible.

    However, I did find a source for blower wheels that have the same Torrington part number. It is the same blower wheel but the hub is 5 mm instead of the 1/4" bore. The hub also has the same outside dimensions as the original. These can have the hub enlarged and then they are exact replacements.

    Here is where I purchased:

    Electric Trading Company (located in NY)

    Single Inlet Blower Wheel 2-3/4" D 1-1/4" W 5mm Bore SKU: 02240108-5mm-P-CCW-01
