Found good gas heater install directions with dimensions! smiling bouncing smiley

I had been looking for the dealer instructions to install the optional gas heater in an early model.

The only one that I could find was the 60, but it has differences than 61-63 install because the accessory one indicated exact location of holes and their sizes, etc.

I found the 62 instructions and it has every detail including dimensions.

That's terrific. Thanks for sharing. I don't know that I'll ever use it, but it's nice to have the information.
Thanks

Just what I needed for my 61 Lakewood.
Too bad you don't have diagrams of the templates.

Thanks.

I supplied Clarks with all the NOS heater gaskets for them to reproduce. My NOS in the box heater, probably has the templates, and I will look for them once I get the area in front of the heater cleared out. Home renovation has me up in the air trying to find all the parts that I know that I have. Had to move way too much to make room for the plumbers and HVAC guys.Hoping to clear everything out this winter.

It appears that this is the 1962 Accessory Installation Manual. Pages 218 - 230.

I haven't checked my 1961 accessory installation manual, however, if there are any changes between the years, this is where you would find them. The one thing that is very common with dealer installed accessories, is that if the accessory in inventory fit the year of your car or not, they would make it work, because that way they sold an accessory that was left over in inventory. It was common to find last years accessory on your car, because it would fit and work even though there was a change. Chevrolet also had a bad habit of changing accessory part numbers for the identical accessory, so they could ship more items to the dealerships in the Initial Stocking Order for the model year.
