Heater box defroster/floor divert flap

A couple months ago, I pulled the heater box from my '83 CJ7 to replace the fan motor, fix cables, etc. I was inspired by a great post a while back on this forum.

Last night, I gathered all the parts back up and discovered the diverter flap that routes air to floorboard or defroster was no where to be found. Ugh!!!

Any chance someone out there has theirs apart and can provide enough dimensional data so that I can get one fabbed? It is a simple piece except for getting the lever shaft right.

Or maybe someone knows a source that already has the info to fab one??

Many thanks...

Sorry to bump up an old thread, but I need the same part. Seems like no one replied KChadtho. Does anyone have a suggestion? I dont have the old one to use as a template to fab up a new one. Lets see if anyone has a suggestion.

I am planning on doing the Blazer upgrade and getting the heater box up and running. Thanks in advance.

Don't think the individual part is available, but the entire air box and associated hoses are available here: http://www.mtscompany.com/airbox.htm

I have not seen either of the ones you refer to lugnut28. I need to look to see if I have holes for anything like that. I was under the impression the one I needed was like the one form my above post

The two lugnut28 shows are in the top intake tube
The one needed is in the heater box, above the trans tunnel... The defrost door

If I was home I could give measurements. I have a few boxes apart

Anyone have any suggestions on where I can get the defrost diverter?

As far as I know, you would have to buy a used heater box assembly to get that door.

Is yours missing completely or do you at least have the pivot rod? (maybe rusted off) If you do I can give you measurements and angles if you want to bent one from cut metal sheet. I don't have a spare

I do have the Rod. How is it attached to the rod? I doubt it rusted off, as there is no sign of rust on any of the remaining parts.


I think I will make it out of an old license plate.
