Re: Heater Plate

Thanks,

That is the plate that I need info for. The plate shown is for the front firewall mounted heater and the floor mounted heater. The knob defrost arrow shows clockwise rotation which would point to floor. This leads me to think that there was a plate that was marked front off defrost.

Heater Plate

Hello,
I need some help. Does any info exist concerning the engraving on the 1938 plastic heater plate behind the knob.
I have a broken one that says HEATER. I have a photo of one that has FRONT OFF FLOOR. The rotation arrow leads me to believe that there should be one that says Heater OFF DEFROST and another one that says DEFROST. Any info would be appreciated.

Saffron,

The radio head you have pictured is a 1939-40.

All the parts are available.

I had the same problem. Dwight Heinmuller sells one that works. After two tries with other new units, Dwight's was the only one that worked on my 56.

Hello,

This is my approach for the adapter plate for my 1956 Patrician. The disc brakes use the original spindle and wheels. This is the second generation of disc brakes for my car.

Hello,

I read the thread concerning the six bladed fan. I purchased mine from Classic Auto Air and bolted it on, no spacer needed. There is plenty of clarence for the belts.
I also bought the swing mount. It was a straight forward installation on my 1956 Patrician. Photos have been posted
quite some time ago.
