Triumph TR6 - Heater (again)
|Does anyone have an inside illustration of the heater motor? I have disassembled mine and 2 springs and 2 black spacers are in question.|
|Don, would you explain again just exactly what a "heater"is for?|
John, in sunny South Florida.
|I think I see Don reaching thru' cyberspace to slap John ! haha|
|There he goes with that sunny Floridian crap!|
|HE will get his this summer when the temp here is a beutiful 79 and it is a sweltering 95 in Fl. town.|
|don - check the thread "What I have learned" - they may not have come from your heater at all!!|
Black spacers? - are they the mounting bushes?
Springs? - got me there - no idea - sorry.
|There are 2 Black plastic spacers and 2 heavier duty springs(other than the bush springs) one goes above the bush plate the other goes below.Was kind of hoping that Dan was around but haven't heard from him lately.|
|I have been in contact with a guy who has a reference page on the web. In it is this section|

Advertised as a 60% improvement.
In an email he doesn't know the source and suggest asking the triumph boards. Anyone familiar with this upgrade?
|I'd like to see how a squirrel cage fan fits in and 'upgrades' the OEM fan. It must have some additional hardware to enclose the 'cage' and direct the air flow.|
|Actually, after thinking about it, a squirrel cage might be more efficient. It would only replace the bladed fan.|
I was wondering if any of the Brethren in UK know of this place, or of this upgrade.
