Under cowl fan for heat install.

I finally got a chance to do it. Done. I bought a 4.7X4.7 inch ventilation fan off ebay, draw is a measly .25 amps. Fused it to a .5 amp glass Buss fuse in a 1 1/4 inch fuse holder. Removed my reverse Overide switch and installed a new AC on-off switch. Made 2 brackets from some 3/4 X 1/8 stock and installed a 3rd (middle) vent in my cowling. Took about 2 hours. It works pretty good. It won't warm it to 80 degree's. But it makes a difference by using the heat the engine produces. I have maybe $35 bucks in it, with the fan, vents switch and fuse holder.

Thanks! Here are a few more pics. It doesn't interfere with the air filter lid at all. Can be removed easily yet. And you have to bend the mounting brackets to contour with the cowling. It may fit easier on the cowlings without the cup holders. Mine was super tight. You can see the bends I had to make to get them to fit inside the cowling. I also added a baffle under the cowling to direct the heat into the fan and up to the vents. I'll grab a pic of that tomorrow. My 50 amp circuit breaker for my alternator just came in the mail. So I'll pull the cowling again in the morning to get that spliced into the alt wiring. Took the wife for a quick spin, she can tell the difference in temp after a short 10 minute ride.

If you could build a metal box over the header with a hose to the fan just think of the heat you could get.

I'm always glad to help complicate a simple project I think that's how the old VW's bugs got their heat.

RD, I think she actually impressed last night when she came during her "What the &@$* are you doing", visit! I showed her the heat ducting and the alternator, the defroster, the new wheels and tires.
I had to sleep in the Prowler last night, by the way, I should have stopped showing her stuff after the alternator...
