Heater Box
#1
I'm stuck. Does anyone have a picture of a heater box for a 72. The car was an ac car so thats what the box is. The top of the box where it gets pushed up against the cowl is only fiberglass. I am assuming that there was a collar on it that completely rotted off. Can't get the box to line up right with new fabbed cowl. Any help would be appreciated. Not sure what to do.

Scott,

Would love to get my hands on the diagram. I am going to rebuild the box...basically clean up and put new seals in it. The box isn't lining up right against the heater fan enclosure. Its hardly pushing into it. Is it suppose to be like that? Seems to me it should push into the blower enclosure all the way. Also have to weld on a bracket to support the box opposite the firewall below the cowl.

Thanks

That would be great. Mine is not inserting into the blower housing more than 1/16 of an inch. Did yours fit in tight?

Thanks Scott

Do I need to worry about the vac lines in the heater box? I have no idea where they go. If I'm just using the heat do I need the vac lines. There was ac in the car. The evaporator is still in the box. The detail is very helpful.

Thanks for the help...Looks just like my box. I have no idea where the vac hoses go. They were all disconnected when I went to pull it out. I don't have ac anymore so I'm not sure how many vac lines control the ac. The front bracket by the cowl is still there but the area it screwed into is completely gone. Fabbed a new hat and I guess I will have to tack weld on some type of bracket to hold the box in place on the inside by the backside of the cowl.

Nothing is easy with these things. It was good to see the blower housing out. I have to figure out why the blower isn't working. Not sure if the blower is shot or there is a wiring issue. No power in car now so I may have to come back to it. I was thinking of pulling the blower and testing it with 12V but I'm not sure if it runs on 12V or is stepped down. I wonder if I can hook the wires to my battery to test.
