    Default Heater cables - 73

    Short and to the point: The PO had disconnected all the heating cables and didn't ship the required parts to reassemble it. Any pictures avaiable. I couldn't find a thread with the specifics - if there is one please line me up. Thanks.

    Are you looking for how to hook up the plastic heater ducting or the heater control cables? If you are missing parts let me know. I have lots of extras.

    I have a '73 heater box out of the car if you need pics taken of anything. It's missing the cables also but the attaching clips are there. If you need parts from this box or the whole thing, it's yours.

    Mike/Ron - I am not quite sure what I am looking for yet, but currently I have three hanging cables. Two on the drivers side and the longest one on the pass side.
    I have their purposes figured out now (thanks to Graeme, Dan and an hour on my back), but at least need the screwdown cable/sheath clips (and screws) for the previously mentioned items.
    Do you know if there are supposed to be any cable hangars on them?
    Thanks

    BTW - I have heat on the windshield now

    The illustration in the Nissan parts manual is the same as Graeme posted. It doesn't show the cables or any "hangars". The associated parts number listings does not show any thing that could be described as a hangar or used to hold the cables in place either. Hopefully you only need to route the cables properly and fasten them. Take notes when you get it right in case I run into trouble putting mine back together. Seems to me I read a very old post covering this. Got you covered with the cable clamps & screws. PM me a mailing address and I'll try to get them to you before a Canada Post strike happens.

    There should be FOUR cables.

    Two to the left side of the heater plenum to control
    A) Fresh Air or Heated Air
    B) Room or Defrot

    The two on the right side,
    A) one goes to the plenum to control the Water Valve
    B) goes to the Fresh Air Vent to open or close it.

    For the most part, the cable sheaths should be stiff enough that once routed to their destination you shouldn't need anything to hold them up or in place.

    FWIW
