I opened mine up today.
Somebody put the smaller core in mine and left the rest wide open.
I guess I could make a plate like like you did.

Re: All about heaters.

Ok I have something to ad to the thread that is a bit puzzling. I decided to take the heater box apart and start the dry fit to see what core I might need. I have a "large" core with the Ranco valve, have not decided as of yet whether I'm going to keep this set up or not and just go with a hand turn valve under the hood. I a bit of a purest so I'm torn between the OEM look and less aggravation.

I took the top off of the box and discovered that although the firewall has the proper hole in it for a the control cable to pass, the deluxe heater box does not? I snapped some pictures of everything for the record and everyone’s reference. I also took pictures of the core with the Ranco valve in situ, to see how it all lines up. It seems to fit well and I’m hoping that the core and Ranco valve will be usable. I bought the valve off eBay about 3 years back. IF this core is no go I’ll probably go with a match and will need to modify the top of the heater box I believe, based on other pictures I’ve seen.

I have not figured out what the large hole in front is for just yet, any Ideas?

Let me know what you fine folks think.

Re: All about heaters.

Ok Update. Rad shop said that core has holes and it would be about 300 to patch it right. Sorry I can't justiify that much money on something with and 'Out-of-Sight' warrenty (As soon as you're out of sight, it's out of warrenty).

I need to by after market. Based on my measurements I 'believe' it will be part number (32-2509 from LMC $70.00 with trade in. I'm going to call them and see if we can match it up..

Re: All about heaters.

Ok I called LMC to inquire about the ďdeluxeĒ heater core (part number 32-2510)

http://www.lmctruck.com/icatalog/cbe/full.aspx?Page=31

I was hoping to see a picture vs. a drawing. Sure enough they had a picture on file and sent it me (below). Iím going to order this one and install with an external valve to control water flow. I donít want to do this, but as the cost to fix the little holes will run $300, it just does not make since to invest this when living in New Orleans, LA. I wonít use the heater all that often and if needed, Iíll just twist a valve open.

Iíll probably need to modify the top of the heater box.

Re: All about heaters.

You will indeed have to modify the cover as I've learned w/ my '62 deluxe. After much research and returning cores that did not match my original, I concluded that there is no aftermarket that will match; so I reordered from LMC and cut a new hole in the cover and will eventually patch the lower hole. The real challenge will be cutting the top cover to accomodate the upper tube.

Re: All about heaters.

Thanks that is what I needed to see. How did you end up popping the hold in; with a punch or just rough cut?

Re: All about heaters.

Replaced my heater blower motor and discovered that the last person to work on it only re-installed 3 of the 5 screws. There was also 2 missing from the heater core cover.

This has probably been done by alot of guys but thought I would post here anyway........

Went to the hardware store and a couple auto parts stores and could not find the right screws so what I ended uop doing is buying some Stainless Steel self tappers in the right size and ground the tip off. Looks really close to OEM and will hold up much better in this climate.

Re: All about heaters.

Ok, thought I would mention that the 60-63 metal defrost vents are not integral to the dash, the bolts are underneath the windshield seal and I'm pretty sure are impossible to get at with removing the windshield.

Re: All about heaters.

Here is a pic of my 61 suburban.



Great thread!

Thank you markeb01 for pictures of you manuals... helped me figure out where the plug from the fan switch to the fan motor needs to go. I thought something was missing on my rig, looks like there is a spot on the back of the unit in the cab to plug it onto. Might be why my fan is either on or off out of the 4 positions. After plugged in, maybe the fan will have off and then 3 speeds.

Great picture of the auxiliary heater for the suburban aerotruk63, I would love that in mine to warm up the larger space in my suburban. It get kinda chilly in Sandy Oregon.

Re: All about heaters.

Ordered a new 64-66 blower motor,
Question;
Why is there a 1in hole in the side of the new motor housing?
The old one did not have this hole.
Looks like I will now need a rubber plug to cover this hole....

I ran into the same problem w/my 63 deluxe w/ranco valve. Take the off the shelf deluxe core and your oem core to your local shop. Have them, swap the oem tanks to your new core. Cost around $60 and you will not have to modify anything on the heater box or lid.

Re: All about heaters.

Okay I found a plug for it thanks, though maybe this motor might need the breather!
But you say no so a plug is what I used!
Thx
