    Why? Do you want to use it as a heater? :)

    Yo Steven - Wassup? Heater cables about $30-35 each for the long ones.

    Oh it's Peter (Helbus) by the way.

    I have just gone and had a look at my bus, and it seems the last person has put a red knob on the cold lever and my second hot lever is missing. I thought I had the hot on full and it didn't work, turns out all I had was cold on full.

    Heater ?

    after looking at all that corroded and rusted piping coming from the engine you have to wonder if it would just be easier to put in a little electric heater under the dash ? i have had to use one in the past for a car that had no heater, to get it passed for Rwc..the cost was about $ 35 and it worked great...what think you ???

    I've been thinking the same thing.
    My heater works fine but it doesn't generate enough heat for an Adelaide hills winter!

    I had my heating system looked at a while back and after taking out the coke can that had been welded in (!) it works great and heats the whole car up in no time at all. Maybe give it a once over and check that all is as it should be. After all, they were built for German winters.

    If they are set up right they work really well,... some might say too well.
    It's to hot,... it's too cold,... It's to hot,... it's too cold,... It's to hot,... it's too cold,...

    the best way to adjust it is to open the window a bit at a time.....

    ;) :lol:

    Fumes when I use the heater

    Now I've replaced the cables to the heater I have heat BUT terrible fumes in the cabin.
    Is there a fixable problem without replacing the heater boxes or is it possible there could be a leak somewhere else in the heater system?. I have read the boxes are about $300 .

    Roy has new ones for $420 each (Need 2)......... a fuel heater and blower is about $1250 ............the fumes are usually cause by oil getting into the heat exchangers
