1968 – 1979 VW 1600 Transporter Supplementary Heater

The heater unit is a relatively sophisticated piece of equipment. When operating it consumes approximately 0.2-0.65 litres/0.35-1.1 pints per hour. It is fitted with a glow/spark plug which provides for initial warm up and then continuous ignition of the mixture. The electrode gap should be maintained at 0.10 in.

The glow plug circuit is automatically switched off when working temperature is reached. Fail safe devices ensure cut off in the event of overheating and cut off in the event of non-ignition so that petrol does not continue to be pumped.

It is good practice to use the heater at regular intervals whether it is needed or not. Maintenance consists of checking the spark and glow plug operation if for any reason the heater has been left unused for a long time. It is also important to ensure that all electrical connections are tight and free from corrosion.
