who knows the history of 76-79 jeep heaters??
I picked up my tub on the 31st from a guy in knoxville TN. (St. Louis to Knoxville= 16 hours round trip)It was worth it though, what a tub!
Anyways, the heater was still in it, and it is much different from the one in my orginal 78. The tub is suposed to be a 76 CJ5, it does have a type B roll bar with the bolts in it for shoulder harness but i think this was added later. The heater in the tub is missing the blower fan but the fan should be in the middle of the unit. The heater has a small defroster attachment that connects to two central openings where the windshield frame sits.
In contrast the 78 heater has the blower fan on the far passenger side, and the heater core in the middle. It has quite a bit larger defroster duct.
Can someone shed some light as to what is going on and what i should do? Thanks- Tim
