So that just circulates? Or do you intend to use a fresh air feed for it still?
Its a circulating heater, but i may play with the possibility of running the fresh air feed to it too.
Before you go fitting that you might want to look at the heater matrix inside the standard unit.
The get clogged with rust and sludge just like any other radiator and loose efficiency over time.
Yeah i though of replacing the matrix and cleaning it out, but i saw that little unit and thought why not just get a more efficient, smaller modern unit. Less hassle and also nice to have the directional vents for my feet too.
It is also that the fan in the unit was blowing about as hard as a mouse with asthma. I'd had a leak where the panels around the window had rusted away and i suspect it got pretty water damaged since it was ages until i got it fixed.
The car had been sitting untouched for about 6 years before i got it driving again in October last year. So there is a lot still to do to get him back to my daily drive.
I think i will end up having to replace the hoses right up to the thermostat, having a feel around, they are a bit crusty too. Or do you think i can give them a good clean out to get rid of all the crud that has built up?
