cable operated heater in early FSJ's?

In a thread on the M715 zone people are talking about factory cable operated heater controls on early FSJ's.

I've niether heard of nor seen them. I have/had three 63's and they all had/have vacuum controls.

My 63 service manual says nothing about them, just has pics/info on the vacuum controls.

Does anyone here know anything about them? I'm thinking they aren't factory.

Heater

Back in the days of the introduction of the FSJ, the heater and defroster was an option. Most got it. I know of one from Florida that did not have it. Would have the same thing in other hot climate areas.
I would imagine someone doing the heater install without factory equipment.
The factory heater was available from the dealer through the parts.
All had vacuum controls, the early ones did not have the vacuum reservoir.
Mine is early production, and does not have the reservoir.

That's about what I thought. It wouldn't make much sense to have two different operating control styles for the same vehicles.

I am not familiar with the heater on the 715, but am familiar with the heating system for the M-37. That was just a box with a blower fan. Check an under-hood and an inside shot of a 715 to see where the heater is. There are probably no provisions on the dash for heater controls.

The M715's use the same heater as the civilian FSJ's but with cable operated controls.

The admin. was saying that early civi fsj's used the same setup, and two people have claimed to have seen them.
I called owner installed.

I've had several '63's - all had vacuum controls.

As fo people who have claimed to have seen them...I'll bet if you posted that you had a '69 Super Wagoneer in Purple with a Chrysler Hemi and a Doug Nash 5-speed in it, someone would claim their uncle's best friend's cousin had one just like it that he bought new...

Most likely they were thinking about the cable operated air vents, not sure if the M715 had those but thinking... not.

I changed mine to operate the temp control with a cable. used a manual choke cable. pull it out for hot, push it in for cold.
