#1 Heater blade Series 3

Post by Djerome60 » Fri Feb 02, 2018 4:23 pm

Hi,

when i bought my Series 3 1972 the heater Fan/ box was missing. I have managed to find (from SNG) the heater box, motor and resistor but it looks like the blade is no more built.
Limora offers its and i have actualy ordered the part for 2 months but they said that they struggle to find a supplier. My order is still open but my level of hope is decreasing day on day.
My questions:
-Do you know where i could source it from?
-Is a blade from series 1 or 2 even if known as less efficient tahn the series can be fitted ? (Size and motor output diameter)
-Does a blade from other brand, model can be adapted to be fitted?

Many thanks in advance for your support.
Jérôme

There is a well documented conversion to upgrade heater fan output by using a Pontiac Fiero fan and motor although I'm not sure whether it is suitable for a series 3. This is what I have bought for my Series 1.

Hi,

I bought all the Fiero parts to modify my Series 3 but I have not carried out the mod because the fan/squirrel cage is not deep enough. I have some ideas to modify further but I have not tried them yet because I am reluctant to modify the snail casing (the fan case) for the Fiero motor. I also heard that the fan from a Toyota Cami/Daihatsu Terios will fit, I can look for the details if needed. However, I did get a fan from SNG for the original motor, so I am surprised it is no longer available.

Regards,

Simon

Simon,

initially i have ordered the full kit from SNG (Cage, motor, Blade and resistor) but after a while they called me to inform that they could not get the balde anylonger. I fear that Limora will get back to me soon with the same answer.
Do you think that i should go for the Daihatsu/ Toyota one?
Thansk again.

Jérôme

Good new, Limora just informed me that my blade in on its way. They fund it apparently.
I'll keep you posted as i remain cautious as as long as this will not be fitted and working i'll keep a doubt but it's a good sign.
Keep you posted.
Thanks to all of you for yoru help.

HI,

bad news !!!! What Limora sent me was an order cancelled few week ago (air vents).... this was not the balde i was looking for.
I guess i'll cancel the order and go for an alternative solution as suggested.
Thanks to all for your help.
I'll keep you posted.

Simon,

i ordered this ref on ebay. 30 euros and i have the spare engine.
MOT101 AC Heater Blower Motor for Daihatsu, Toyota Terios Nomada

Almost a perfect fit - i have just slightly adjusted the central hole to fit to the motor axle.
I have no reference but it looks like the air flow is really good.

i'm getting close to the end of my restoration ;-)

thanks again;
Jérôme
