The latest problem to present itself is the Artic Heater
This is a box that sits between the front seats, blows hot air onto the windows, it works quite well!
It is heated from the engines coolant system, which means hoses coming from the engine bay into the cab, this is all ok, until they start to leak..
One of the has perished, the other was poorly fitted, and has been rubbing on a sharp part of the bodywork so has eventually worn through
the hard task has been to find long supplies of radiator hose, that is flexible enough to route through where it needs to go!
In the top photo is the heater box between the seats, the lower photo shows the hoses coming through the cab, the upper hose has perished, the lower one has been rubbing on the gearbox tunnel
