Ok sorry I will need a heater LOL......I am thinking of fitting a electric carb heater to the carb and using the hot air ducting that the carb is using for a cabin heater.

The electric carb heater is not a replacement for the manual carb heat. On a Jab engine, the manual carb heat is a must. Electric carb only stops the ice from sticking, it will not clear it or prevent it. I have both on mine.

Cabin heating is extremely simple. It only consists of an air input which goes to an air box surrounding the exhaust. You then have a control cable in the cabin that merely opens a very simple valve allowing the warmed air in to the cabin. There is a complete kit available but, in my opinion, very over priced for what it actually is.

The standard cabin heater unmodified is not brilliant. It does warm it up a little but on a very cold day, it will still be coat and gloves.

The heater control box (valve) and cabin heat muff are here:

Ref: HEATERBOX
Ref: HEATERMUFFS

Other than these parts, you only need a control cable and a bit of scat hose on to an air intake.

The air intake is on the same page Ref: 1037094.

The control cable is here:

http://www.sky-craft.co.uk/acatalog/Sky ... trols.html

Ref: 3073054

Then just some scat hose (1.25 inch if I remember correctly) to attach the muff to the valve and the muff to the air intake. The valve just rivets to the firewall and a hole drilled underneath it in to the cabin to let the warmed air in when you pull the control cable to open the control box.
