Dear Bolters,

I'm repairing the window defroster in my chevy 3100 from 1951. The only problem is that I'm missing a part and can't find it anywhere.
Can somebody tell me what the part is called or where i can find it? The part is circled red on the picture I attached.

With kind regards,
Thijs

Junkyard. Happy hunting.

Oops, I notice you're in the Netherlands. Maybe someone here can find one in a junkyard. Otherwise, creative plumbing might be the only answer.

Give it a while and hopefully someone here will have one or know where to get it. If not, do you know a good tin-wacker in your area? Could probably have one made for not too much. Then use the hammered paint discussed in other threads.

Good luck! !

There is a used recirculating heater on E-Bay, its complete and has the piece you are looking for. Not "cheap" but is priced right based on my experience.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/254161086353?hash=item3b2d2e6791:g:pswAAOSwRfRch8hW

I've purchased two used units and still ended up having to buy a new round heater core. Those only became available in the last couple of years.

Good luck

Try contacting Jim Carter. Link [oldchevytrucks.com] They have a large collection of original used parts (a basement full), and may have what you need. You'll probably have to call them and ask about it. Phone # is on the website, or you could try e-mail also.

Thijs - I took the defroster outlet fitting off my old heater unit from my '51-3100. It does not look exactly like the one in your photo. Take a look at the attached photos and see if this is what you are looking for. It has no part number on it but the tag on the heater unit says: " Mfg. by Harrison; Lockport, NY; H-02-47". Hope this helps!

His pic showed a recirculating heater. The one you posted, Charlie, won't fit on a recirculating heater. It needs a round inlet.
Picture is from my recirculating housing.

Clarsen, as hansen said, that outlet is not for a recirculating heater, but for a temperature controlled heater. But thank you for the help!

Hansen can you give me the diameters of the two outlets? That will be a huge help!

I can do that, but it might take me a day or two. I need to dig my way thru the snow to my trailer where that stuff is stored. wink

Thijs,
Thanks for the nudge to go out and dig the trailer out. I needed to put a few items in there as well.
Here are some additional pictures and measurements for you.
The smaller of the two outlets is 44mm diameter (1-23/32 inches for us American guys wink )
The larger outlet is 49mm diameter (1-15/16 inches)
Both are 24mm (1 inch) long
They're arranged in a true wye (45 degrees off the main inlet)
The wye is rotated approximately 30 degrees off vertical with the larger outlet away from the firewall and at the top of the heater.
The larger outlet also has a bead rolled in it that's about 24mm long and standing about 5mm above the diameter. The bead is centered on the 24mm length of the outlet. That would help hole the hose in place.

Thank you very much Hansen! These measurements are a huge help. I'm going to try and recreate it as good as possible. With these measurements it wil be a lot easier!

You're welcome. Let me know if you need anything else in your effort to fabricate the part.

Did you try to contact Jim Carter to see if they had one? Finding an original part is always easier than making one.

if you must fabricate. you may consider existing abs or pvc plumbing t's or y's of a similar diameter for a jumping off point to connect to flex tubes. easy to cut and glue and drill for a diverter. Necessity is the mother of invention.
