Bilge blowers

I have an early 62 that did not have the blower. I haven't had any
problems. I have noticed that those people I know who do have them
installed seem to instinctively bypass them by using the switch under the
dash. If you bypass it all the time it doesn't seem worth installing ....
there are so many other things to spend amphicar part money on.

Eric

Thanks for the info on blowers. I wasn't aware that there was a
bypass in the system, I wonder why it would ever need to be defeated.
I agree with the part about there are so many things to spend on Amphi
$$$ on.

Thanks,

Marty

If your blower is blowing gas fumes in your face via the defroster,
you have something wrong. That "T" fitting provide fresh air intake
for the blower. It has to get the fresh air from someplace to
replace the air removed and the duct does just that. It should NOT
blow air into your defroster, it should be sucking air from the
cabin.
