Advice on Espar Heater Install into 03' EB E350 7.3L
I'm seeking advice on installing a new Espar S2-D2L heater into my 2003 EB E350 w/7.3L diesel - that was converted to RB50 floorplan by SMB West in 2008, including 4x4 (so the fuel tank has been downsized to fit the xfer case). I'll attach a few pics of interior. Ive watched several install videos on YouTube but they are all for Sprinters, ugh! (sorry I'm old school and love the older Econoline aesthetics). If you know of Econoline heater install videos, please share! I have a good handle on the general install process, just not specifically to this van body style.
Specifically, any suggestions on the following would be greatly appreciated:
1.) The best interior location(s)/tips to consider installing the heater unit, along with electrical and exhaust routing, etc.
2.) The crux of this project really seems to be how to tap into the diesel fuel tank - including dropping the tank, and installing a pick-up pipe. So any advice on how to do best install that into the tank would be fabulous! This is the part that intimidates me!
Thanks in advance for any and all tips!
