Well winter has arrived where I live !

The fan that blows fresh air into the heater had totally given up ! Replacements are non existent or very expensive.. the last time I spent time hunting it, but a marine engineer point me in this direction:-

its called " IN-LINE BLOWER "

MODEL No/:- SF1B1-130-01 TAKES +12v at 2.5 Amp DC BATTERY Power and is ABS platic in construction and has a fuse rating of 5A.

And its cheap !

Anyone need one I can send a photo of it fitted.

feel free to PM me with you email address.

: ))) Tim

(I was one of the members who fitted a discovery tdi200 engine comple with turbo charger from a tdi300.)

Ebay 16.99 includimg postage uk based seller

SEAFLO IN LINE BLOWER 12V 3" MARINE BOAT VENTILATION in-line air vent inline


______

Notes on fitting :- it just jams on the 3 inch hole on the heater exchange if you are fussy then the air input to the device needs a flexible tube presumably going to the air intake grill on the nearside front wing. But I've not bothered.

Good option! I see they do a 4" version too for larger applications. Does it actually work ok when fitted? Do you get much air flow through the vents under the dash?

I've got a 6" fan from a computer blowing lots of air through my heater matrix.

Too much air being blown through will cool the heater matrix excessively.

......and the big question from me, does it actually make it warmer?, or just fresher?

Very Happy
