Hello All,

Any thoughts as to why every time
I pull the blower on it blows a fuse?
I mean every time, it doesn't even get
a chance to run.
Thanks

A wire or spade connector on the switch maybe contacting metal and when you try to complete the circuit..there she blows.

Definitely check the switch as PB says. Also could be stuck. A non-turning motor like that is close to a dead short. Of three TR6s I've had that had been off the road for many years, two had stuck fan motors. I had to pull the heater;remove the glove box and pass-side heater ducting, and you can struggle it out the passenger side with moderate contortions and cussing.
