Orientation of fphe installation

Postby greenghost45 » Sun Nov 25, 2012 9:08 pm

I am going to add a small 16 plate fphe to my plantdrive SVO conversion of 1997 Cummins. The issue is orientation of the heater. I know that the mfger recommends installing it vertically but I have seen (online) other conversions that have it laying flat. The latter would be a much easier installation as I have a spot for the FPHE next to the heater hoses, but it will have to lay flat to fit. Does anyone have experience with mounting a FPHE in a flat orientation? Thanks!
