My van's heater motor gave up on me at Easter - stopped turning - got hot (and smelly) - but didn't pop the fuse!
I reckon the beast is too old to get a new motor (no, not the missus!) so unless one of yous has got one to offer for sale, what does anyone reckon to having the motor rewound?
Any suggestions welcome.

Hi its not that big of a job to do but if your keeping the van over the next winter i would tend to buy one from a breakers yard if you can get your hands on one and replace it yourself for the winter coming in but its up to you i hope this helps all the best Donald

Thanks Glenda - will take that on board.
The puzzling bit is that the fan blades will spin freely by hand!

Hi, new here and owned my ex-welsh ambulance camper conversion master for three months .now midwinter .the heater hasn`t worked since day one and i`m freezing i`ve bled the highest bleed point with no effect.. My main problem with this stems from the fact that in the offside of the engine compartment is a cylindrical fitting with electical contacts and what looks like a gloplug. Pipes go from this mystery fitting to water system but i know not the purpose or function of this. my backyard mechanic took one look and said "cant help you mate" and this is my first diesel so I am not sure what I am looking at most of the time. I cant find a manual on the net that gives me this info. Any help with my anti hypothermia campaign will be welcome.
