Peter I have no corvair heater exp but lots of heater exp in airplanes
and the ops is identical. That same heater was in some airplanes. The
thermostat should be working even at a higher setting. But, those
things are finiky and it may be that it does not have a correct
reference no being installed, no plenum to take up the heat and
homogenize the temps a bit. install it and check for ops at the temp sw
and cutout, maybe the temp sw is sticky or weak. I have found some of
the temp sw's were adjustable, too, but don't know about the corvair
setup. Mark Durham

Did several test runs of heater set up on tailgate and finally got
everything working pretty nicely. 70 deg. day out today so it sure
does`nt take long for it to cycle. It took quite a long time for me to
figure out what everything does and when it does it but in the end it
works like the manual explains it. The purge switch was puzzeling the
heck out of me but after some cleaning and fondeling it is performing
well. One thing I noticed is if I turn up the thermostat at all it
seems to be cycling on the overheat switch on and off to the gas
supply solenoid if it runs for very long, like before the thermostat
shuts it down. Is this normal? I was hopeing it is and is just the
effect of trying to make heat on a warm day when there is not much
cooling. It blows hot air for quite a while after the burner shuts
down. Anything from past exprience any of you have will sure be
appriciated Thanks to all of you out there that have helped me with
this. Getting
 close to installing it I hope.
