    Thanks Huevos; there's some real nice stuff there. My favorites are the COE ramp truck with Deuce, and the burgundy '57 Ford with two 4 bbls. But WTF is up with that new Camaro??

    The "health heater" was great!
    Enjoy healthful carbon monoxide as you drive!

    On a similar note, back in 1973, I was stationed at Eielson AFB in Fairbanks, and getting ready to drive my '65 VW Bug down the Alaska Highway to my next base at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. That car was equipped with a gas-powered heater fed by the fuel tank under the front hood. Fired by a spark plug you ignited by pulling a knob on the dash, then turning to adjust the temperature, with an flex exhaust pipe that exited under the front passenger fender.
    It was great for those -60˚ mornings, but now that I look back on it, I'm pretty sure it was a cleverly disguised German-designed bomb intended for revenge on the victorious Americans after WWII...

    Ah, Beerbelly..I have the same heater on my '66 Westcoaster Post Office truck. Still afraid to fire it up. One day, I'll park it away from the house and try to fire it up.

    Yeah, it takes a bit of bravery to pull that knob the 1st time. Beer would ease the tension...

    When I 'restored' the truck, I deliberately disconnected the power to the heater. Didn't want to take a chance of 'accidently ' starting it. I did manage to find an installation and operation manual. When I have time, I'm going to test it one part at a time(spark, blowers, fuel) before I start it. There is no fuel cut off, so if I start the blower, it automatically pumps fuel to the injector. It will be my own little 'buzz bomb'(for those that heard about them after WWII-I'm not quite that old!).

    You could put a shut off valve in line but I'm guessing by the time you need it, it might be to late.

    They did put the gas tank in the front and route the fuel line through the sheet metal cooling shroud to create engine fires. Their engineering failed as the fires were usually unable to make it from the engine to the tank. I suspect that they failed to take the existence of fire trucks into account.
