Re: All about heaters.

Need some help. Took me awhile to find a thread that talked about heaters. Yes, these 60-66 heaters can be a challenge.

I have a 1961 C30 Apache Stakebed. I need to replace the Heater Blower Resistor. This truck has the recirculating heater. On this particular year, it appears that the resistor snaps into position on the backside of the heater box. Its difficult to get your hand behind the heater box to replace it.

Two questions:
1. Where can I get a resistor for this truck?
2. Any pictures for a breakdown on how to remove the heater box to replace?

I've attached a photo on how it looks. It was like this when I bought the truck. Only thing I can figure is someone took it out and couldn't get it back in.Name:  IMG_3060.jpg

Re: All about heaters.

Years ago I walked into the GMC Truck Center in Montreal with my old resistor. The original was discontinued. Another parts guy comes over sweeps mine of the counter goes to the back and comes back with one from a 73 and up truck. " Just missing the notches. " I said. "Got a file ? " he responded. Learn from the masters.
