View Full Version : Cool/Heat: 1950 Champion Heater/Defroster Hose Tee Location?

The tee connection for my defroster is located low on the heater hose, just before it rounds the bend to go under the floor. I'm wondering if this is the right location, as I've seen a couple other 1950 Champions with the tee located just in front of the heater blower motor, where the clamps would be much easier to reach. It's hard to find a good original unrestored car. Does anyone have a picture of the correct location? Thanks, Tom

I have a 52 V8 but would think the hoses should be about the same. You should have 2 tees in the system. One down near the frame and the the other is about even with the upper control arm cutout in the fender. I'll see if I can get a picture later.

I don't have an original photo, but attempted to duplicate. This is a '50 Champion.

Thanks guys. That pretty well confirms that I should move my tee to in front of the heater air hose.
