AC Evaporator

If u would run water hoses to an AC evaporator would it serve as a heater?

Probably, however it wouldn't be efficient.

the reason I was asking is my AC is under my seat and never cooled good because all the air comes out on the floor and only cools my ankles .I have a good heater under dash but its large. I'm changeing motors this winter and am going to have to recess my firewall quite a bit and the old heater isn't going to fit I can go without air,but like to have heat for cool spring and fall nights I don't drive it in the winter,I live in Pa.so I thought if I could utlize the evaporator as a heater it would be out of the way

I have never done this nor have I seen it done but after reading your post earlier I took a look at a Ford Ranger evaporator core I have in my garage and I don't see why this would not work. With this particular core it looks like it might work quite well but I am sure it would depend a great deal on how much flow you can get through it, those lines are small. If you do this be sure and get back and let us know how well it worked or did'nt and what kind of core you use, this is a very interesting question.

No problem. I just thought you'd get more answers and better answers if the thread was in Gen. Rodding Tech.
