'41 Connie Heater Blower Flapper Position


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me where the flapper gate should be positioned on the blower housing for the hot air heater? Toward the front, or toward the rear, as shown on the two pics below?



Actually, there's a third choice...but that puts the lever on the bottom, and kind of hard to reach. I ruled that one out. Smart, eh?

Thanks. The first one it is.

Got the heater and the decal from Boos-Herrel Lincoln Zephyr & Continental Parts 1936-1948.

Nice folks.

Not powder coated. I paint. The blower motor was restored (rewired, new insulation, etc.) by Bill at Spitzer Auto Electric here in the Denver area.

When I get it all finished I'll post pix of the bits here so everyone can see the before and afters.

Here's the way the blower is installed on my 'mostly original' 1941 Continental. The previous owner installed dual exhausts so the heater heat exchanger is missing and he jury-rigged some flexible tubing to the blower. All the heater parts came with the car and I will install them as time (and ambition) permits.

This car also has the original heater intake chamber at the top of the radiator. I had never seen one before I got this car.
