Its just a matter of matching the font and the border size. My dash on my m726 has the intact decal, so I'll bring that right in to the place.

Anybody have any idea how much could be salvaged out of a J10.
Do all 725s come standard with heaters?kk

The heater in the patient compartment is standard issue, it is a gasoline fueled heater.

The personnel heater for the cab was not standard.

Hmmmm.....
If you can stand a measure of inauthenticity, Don, just get a take-out J-truck heater, and swap out the motor, or add a resistor to the circuit. My heater cost almost as much as the hose to plumb it in.

The J truck heater swaps right in...note that the blower motor as mentioned above needs a resistor or needs to be swapped for a 24 volt unit. The other thing to watch is that the early year ones...some of the 60's units for sure but not sure when it changed, are cable operated. Many are vacuum operated and you would need the vacuum switching to make it work...real late ones are even electrically operated...I would steer clear of those.

Forgot to mention that, Jon-- we had to add actuator cables to the '74 we used.

On the vacuum operated units, why couldnít you fabricate parts to make it accept the cables? I donít think it would be too difficult.
