Wasn't here a link about a swede guy who dished the volvo brick wagon heater for a wooden stove?

P.S. i saw a 240 wagon used by a painter in Chicago area.... That wagon earned it's keep.... (ladders, buckets, drop cloths and dust)

At least it would be far cheaper and easier to replace than the OE fan on the 140/240 series.
