Re: A/C Conversion for Heat
In the comfortable warmth of a 95+ Mississippi summer (equal humidity) the motor temp is around 190-210 depending on if its cloudy or clear. I have a feeling that the motor will still run pretty hot even in our winters which ain't all that bad. If I can run the stock heater to defrost the windows on those few really cold mornings, I can run the other unit to keep the rest of me warm. With the half doors, most of the heat stays around my feet pretty well.
Anybody have any knowledge about the little A/C core? I know its pretty small diameter tubing in one end, I just want to be sure it moves enough water through it to stay warm and provide heat, otherwise its not worth it. I can't find any information on the core itself and have not pulled the system from under the dash to look at it.... I'm still in the conceptual stages on this one. I figure a T in the line going into the heater core and a T in the line coming back out through the firewall would be all I need. Maybe a reducer or two to pipe to the A/C core and back but that should be it, right?
Thanks in advance,
