Retrofit an FBH? by Thack


I'm new to owning a 75, and after a few teething troubles I'm really getting to like mine.

It's a 2003 diesel Conny SE and comes without an FBH (Fuel burning heater.). How feasible is it to retrofit one? Is there a step-by-step guide anywhere?

I have searched the forum already but it came back with 200 results. I've done my best but couldn't find what I was looking for.

Many thanks,

This will give you an overview. xpdfdocuments/engineandtechnical/FBH_Explained.pdf We don't have a know how document with install instructions but many members have done the job successfully. One of them will be able to assist.

It's certainly feasible, and one of the easier mods. Prompt me to give a better explanation tomorrow as it'sbedtime right now!

Hi Thack, Thankfully my car came with an FBH, but I helped someone retrofit one a while back. Pretty easy, as the wiring loom is already present. If you can rob one from a scrap car in its entirety than its a mornings work. Its EASILY the best feature on the car, IMHO!

Yes you can retrofit without much difficulty, but dont forget you need the fuel pump aswell as the fbh

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt
