Re: Heater 2
I live in Barrow, Alaska , Its as far north as you can go, just the ocean from then on. The snow is very hard here, hardly ever get powder. I just put 35x15.5 tires on the scout. I hope this will help with the floatation factor. The top layer of snow is so hard that you can drive on it sometimes, especially on the snowmachine trails. But if you break through it is very tough to get back on top, so you dig and dig and dig. Soon I am going to put a locker in the rear and limited slip in the front. I got stuck the other day and I was only spinning one tire in the front and one in the back, gotta fix that. I couldnt give you a price on the heater motor, everything is very expensive here. There is only one parts store in town and I swear there markup is 300%. NAPA (never any parts available) It fits. I am going to look in to the heater motor swap this weekend. To make it clear to myself i want to gauge the rpm of the stock scout motor then the replacement motor to see if it is actually the motor or the ducting system, not too sure. The only good thing about lack of a good heating system is that it wakes you up before you get to work in the morning.
I will keep you posted on what I find out with the heating system this weekend, and let you know what I found out. Stout Scout
