Heater Blower fan removal from race car?
Posted by: Bobdudeman ()
Date: December 09, 2017 06:08AM

I have a 66 Corvair Monza that is my platform for a dedicated race car. It still has the blower attached to it in the rear. The air comes out in the from the rear between the two front seats if that makes sense. I would like to remove all that as it is not necessary for a race car. Any suggestions on where to start? Thank you

Start taking off bolts until it falls out. Just look at it. It's pretty easy to take parts off.

Sort of what I figured. I'm also going to be pulling the switches out of the front of the car I just want to make sure that there was no issues by unplugging all that stuff. I take it's really not necessary equipment

Look in 65 shop manual for all of the heater system. The pieces are above the gearbox. Remove it all for weight loss.

Make certain you block off the hole for the hose that goes from the engine cover to the blower if it has not already been done.

For weight savings you could remove everything but the under dash ductwork. An auxiliary fan could be used, cause every once in a great while it's nice to have at least a cold air defroster in a race car.

It's a very interesting setup. The original owner rigged up something odd. There is a metal dryer vent hose coming in from the back seat area up high next to the rectangular inspection hole where the back firewall. It goes to the blower and then comes out on the floor behind the two front seats. Weird

Motohead, get some more lug nuts on that racecar before your crew chief has to sit home for the weekend.
