  • My heater install in my 1930 tudor

    Here are some pics of the heater I installed in my car it is a 12v neg ground, mounted to a bulkhead plate I built, it uses a 3 speed fan, has a servo controlled 4 port water control valve all of this is inside the car behind the heater. This sets the heater 1.5" below the fuel tank and 3" in from the face of the tank there is adequate foot room under the heater, however I did put in two of the 2" offset seat legs in on the passenger side for additional room and allowed me to put a center console cup holder with the built in boot for my mitchell od. I posted the bulhead plate i made for this heater in another thread because of all the pics.

      Went for a test run yesterday it works good I like that 4 port valve when you shut the heater control it will bypass the coolant, but then you know that. Had to do a little reconfiguration on that valve to get it between the firewall plate and the backside of the heater and get the electrical plug positioned so it was in the clear. I just mounted all of my controls to the heater cabinet, best easiest way to mount them. Leg room is ok but i will still put the 2" setback legs in anyway can't hurt,on my side I would need herman munster shoes to get the clutch in.

          paat doing these are kind of like a building a trailer, so no I can definitely line you up on sources and how to do it, I will not say it is complicated it is not, I did mine this way in order to be able put this car back 100% original. I will give you the sources if you wish pm me and we can talk about this the pictures do not do a good job of showing how to go about this.

          Yes but most make their own because they are pricey. Snyders sells them

          I bought them for both my cars, and they look better than any of the homie ones i have seen made

          They also tilt the front of the seat up or down as well as going forward or back

          The tilt adds to the leg room

          I only put the solid offset legs in on the passenger side and there is more than enough room, well it works really nice 3-4 miles down the road I changed the fan from high to low since it was 40 degrees i eventually reduce the water control valve as well so it works pretty well. Might have to consider those adjusters you are talking about would make getting in and out a little easier.

          I'm 5'9". A real tight fit in a CCPU, no chance of moving the seat anywhere but out!

          I had to turn the fan from high to low it does a pretty good job but then it was 46 degrees.
