Here we have a heater set up from a left hand drive Z converted to work on the right
So what was required to convert it?
No Right Hand parts used
So it just bolted in with no modifications what so ever?
Haven't looked at them but always kind of thought that the motor fan blades
Would have been differant LHD-RHD.
They would be curved in the opposite direction due to the anti-clockwise rotation of the LHD unit. It could be easily fixed by a swap to a Honda fan, I bought one off eBay with the correct rotation that fitted well when I was still in the planning stages of my air-con install.
Thanx for the info on the fan guys, will have to get that sorted
There is some fabrication done to complete the conversion, it does`nt just bolt together, it would be nice if it did
IIRC it was a mk1 CRV fan that cost me around a tenner plus shipping.
These fans will run either way, just swap the terminals round. Ive had one going all day on a 12 volt supply, no problems at all.
Are the vanes on your fan straight or curved?
If they are curved and running the wrong way they will loose efficiency!
I asked myself the same question early this morning when i had a look at the motor and saw they where curved. When i set the motor running in reverse out of the fan box i could feel the differance in performance but when i put it back in the box and conected all the pipes its still up to the job its supposed to do, not a bad little fan if i do say so myself to say its going the wrong way.Thanx for the heads up on the fan though , i totally overlooked the direction thing,
