I have a small problem and sure would appreciate the groups thoughts.  This piece comes from a Hunter Century.
I am having problems with this piece and the underlying lubrication within it:



After priming this piece I found that the lubrication within that neck leached out along the front and back seams.

Are these pieces able to be disassembled?  If so, I can't figure out how to.

Or can this seam be re-soldered to stop the problem from reoccurring?

Any thoughts appreciated, and thanks.

It's likely that bracket is welded on. It's hard to tell without looking at it, but if there are no visible fasteners, it's welded.

Tanks for your reply, Lane.

Yes, the bracket is dual spot welded to the cage - the arrow shows where the leakage came out.  My question is the pivot head that twists, and has the oscillator arm connected within.  I simply cannot find any way to pull that pivoting head off.  No visible fasteners at all . Maybe it was pressed on?

I've decided to strip it back down and then allow those parts to soak in cleaning solvent for a day or two in hopes that I can get all traces of oil/grease removed from inside of those pieces, then try again..

Shoot a few more pics of the pivot knuckle from all angles. Look for a setscrew (sometimes very small) . And it's usually covered by grease or a repaint. I am fairly sure it wouldn't have been pressed in there. Do you have a pic of the fan before disassembly? It's likely someone has pulled one apart, but from your pic, it's hard to tell which model it is.

Lane, thank you again for you interest in my issue.

Here's a couple close-ups.  Now that I've read your response and looked closely at these pics maybe I see the solution.







Is that a pin I need to punch out for things to separate?

P.S. - this is a 10" Hunter Century model 75 type D-10.

Excellent - thanks guys!  Carl, about the time you posted was about the exact time I used a scribe to push on that pin, and low & behold it came out quite easily:






Lane, thanks for making me look at this in a more critical manner.

There you go! Glad you got it out. Sorry I missed your post- I've been getting ready for our meet this weekend. I'm happy Carl helped you out.
