    Default Adding Heat

    Well I scored a heat only box for my 84 cutlass. looking to find out what all is needed to add it. I tore the ac/heat box out when i restored the care a few years ago . So all cables, vacum lines are gone. I do have the controls. I have a car that i can get all that from. Any Idea on what else i might need or problems i might run into??

    If all you have is the box itself you're basiclly SOL...
    Lots of people pull the box out at the bone yard and dont grab everything else.
    Nothing from the AC setup works
    You'll need to find:
    Ducting, upper and lower and the Cutlass only RH duct extension
    Glove box, compartment is thinner
    Under column vent controls
    Controls and wire harness from controls to the box
    LH and RH dash trim vent deletes

    Hmmm that isnt sounding good. Shouldnt I be able to get power to it and duct it to a location? Only place i really need head is to defrost.

    The box i bought has the blower and core, pig tail coming from it.

    looking at Hvac controls for a non ac car, i notice that there isnt a off position on it? Does the blower alwasy run? All I see is HI-LO no off.

    I have a set of controls for sale in tge FS section if you need them.
    Youre gonna have to do some creative mods to get the ducting to work though...
