Hey Guys!  I just wanted to share some photos I took while doing a modification to my Z. One of the Lincoln forum members posted about keeping the package shelf behind the rear seats free of obstacles because the HVB gets its cooling air from openings in the shelf.  Well, here are the photos to prove it.  :)

 

 

HVB Cooling Inlet (RH)

The HVB has two (2) cooling inlet tubes, one on each side of the HVB. The air is sucked in by the HVB cooling fan (see photo below) from the rear package shelf outer edges.

HVB Cooling Fan

This is what makes the one of the noises you may hear coming from the back end after you shut down your car.  :)

Thanks for the pics - is there one cooling fan on that same side as the 12V battery, or is there one on each side?  You mentioned two inlet tubes.

Just the one fan.  Could you imagine the noise two of those monsters would produce!  :)

We are thinking about getting an MKZ hybrid.  Do you have a picture showing the luggage area with the seat down, after re-assembly with your new trunk light location?

Thanks for the pics!! I don't quite follow your comment about the air vents on the shelf though...The HVB vents are in the back window. What's the issue with having items stored on the shelf? That shouldn't block cooling from the back window... :detective:

The shelf under the back window and behind the rear seats used to be called the 'package tray or shelf', I believe that is what Steve is referring to.

The cover over the HVB we also call the 'shelf' but is located inside the trunk.

No problem keeping stuff on the HVB cover (shelf) because it's vented from above.

Ahhhh!! :idea:

 

Now that I reread his comment with your clarification it makes perfect sense. Thanks!

We had station wagons, and I used to ride in the way back arms and head out the back window watching traffic and sucking up exhaust fumes.

 

 

 

OH that explains it then!!!  Dain Bramage!

Hard to tell from the small picture, but the body style looks about late 40's early 50's.

1950 Oldsmobile 88 with Hydra-Matic 4-speed automatic and 135HP V-8, no package tray.  They only made about 2,300 Station Wagons.

Right, no seat belts either.

 

Edit: I'm way off topic, sorry - I blame it on the package tray!
