Default Installing blower on Williams furnace

I got a Williams DV22 natural gas furnace for my greenhouse. I also got the option blower unit. I can't figure out how to install it. I've searched the web and the Williams site and can't find a single picture or video of the inside of one of these things with the blower mounted.

The issue is a screw that holds part of the grating bumps up against the fan. It doesn't matter which direction the screw goes -- I tried both ways.

The metal flange at the top also seems to poke up too high for the outer casing to go back on. But I haven't tried that yet.

Has anybody else installed one of these things?

I don't have a blower on mine, but it might be a smaller unit that doesn't need one. I'd suggest a call or email to the manufacturer's tech support. Likely the problem has been encountered before, they may have photos or video that they only supply on inquiry.

Based upon that photo, I'd simply remove that screw, and drill another hole to put it through that doesn't interfere. It looks like there's plenty of room in both piece of sheet metal.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Ray -- I was planning to drill a new hole 1/4" or so away to hold the pieces together.

Roberta -- I also send an email to Williams.

The first answer was to sent me the diagram for putting the cover on; which I already had. So I restated my question.

Second reply was to send me the instructions for mounting the blower; which I had pointed out was the whole reason for my inquiry.

Third reply finally addressed my question. They said, "It looks like you received the new motor with the blower. Please see attached wiring diagram and instructions for how to mount correctly. I will be shipping the new mounting bracket to your location below." So maybe that will take care of the problem? I haven't received the new mounting bracket yet, but the "new" instructions look very similar to the old ones.

We'll see. But thanks for the encouragement.
