Damn! It hadn't occurred to me to shop for a new motor, let alone 3rd-party. Live & learn.

Then I pulled the blower motor itself, and confirmed it was dead. Replaced it with another from a yard, voila! - $50 solution.
$45 brand new at NAPA. Don't know how long they last. I put one in the
85 Corolla a year ago. So far, so good. But I'm on my second
'guaranteed for life' NAPA alternator. I didn't return the original
Toyota alternator and will eventually replace the brushes. I was
pressed for time, so I bought the new one.
