I'd love any input. I don't know a lot about electric motors. It is working now, but will the motor hold up with out airflow?

I think you will have some trouble with the motor and it is risky fooling with a 120V motor with no ground wire (2 prong plug). If it is a 2 prong plug you should buy one of those GFCI converters for safety. (These are very nice to have around in general.)

I think you could rig up something good with a windshield wiper motor, which you can get for next to no $$ at a junkyard. It will be safer too as it will run off a 12V power supply. If you are creative (and man you are) you could pull the intermittent switch too.
