Sorry for your trouble. I am not familiar with your vehicle. I see no one has responded to you I will try to assist you with the insulation. I will need some information about the heater. Is the heater a kit with heater controls? is it new or used? how many wires are on the heater? is it a water heater or a gas fired heater? Could you send me a picture of the heater or schematics or instructions that you have. If you can give me more information i think i can assist you. Jim

Hi Jim, the heater is a nasco warmaride fitted as standard in 1966/67 Holden HR Premier models. There is a brown wire from heater body ( earth) and 3 wires black red & yellow which connect to a 2 speed control switch . Problem is i am not sure which wire to connect to power. Hope this clarifies things a litlle.

Is it a hot water heater or is it a gas fired heater? Jim

The heater internal fan wiring is as follows:
Brown wire: provides 12-volt positive power from the fuse panel to the fanmotor (protrudes from heater casing).
Black wire: connects power from the motor to the heater fan switch.
Yellow wire: provides an earth for the heater fan motor on high-speed.
Red wire: provides an earth for the heater motor on low speed (via the low-speed resistor).The heater switch connections to the black, yellowand red wires are riveted at the back of the switch(i.e. not easily disassembled). A small piece ofcardboard, cellotaped on, insulates the rivetedterminals from the heater casing.
To check for a “bad earth” on the heater, examine the following locations for any
rust, paint, grease or looseness:a) the slot-head self tapping screw/star washer from the heater earth point,inside the fan blade housing.b) the two
