Title: Leaving the driver's heat...
Post by: Danny on May 10, 2006, 10:58:33 AM
I am wanting to leave the driver's heat but remove the bus heat.  What are some things to keep in mind when doing this?

Thanks...!

Danny

What I did was to move the big heater core inside with 2-14" radiator fans to power it.  Now I have a gigantic heater but without the underneath being blocked.  If you don't want to do that, then just splice the radiator coolant lines so they run to the front, install a ball valve so you can truly turn it off in summer, and put a toggle on the dash to run the electric booster pump for the heater.  I haven't had to use the electric booster pump yet-the engine water pump seems to do a good job.  Good Luck, TomC

I just removed the large heater core from the bus heating and kept the fans in as I kept the bus air. The drivers heat and defroster works great.
