Some pretty compact units that could take the place of the large and knee-pain inducing Kodiak heater.
I have the Nostalgic Air Parts ID-250 In-Dash Evaporator Unit. It will mount right where the Kodiak heater was.

I got this from another Series IIA and had all the parts. Except the double crank pulley.

If you are buying all new from NAP, I'd suggest the ID-255 because it has a heater as well.

Yeah but if you pull the Kodiak you won't have heat...

Looks like the one option may have heat as well...

Worth looking into for sure..

Since I've now mounted the Kodiak, I ain't changing nuddin.

Sure would be interesting to find out how well these units do in winter and summer.
