Anyway to turn off the heat from the engine , into the cab dept.? Summer heat are up to 90 plus, cabin Pressure doors and windows are open , but more heat inside the cabin .
I have the pipes wrapped
Do you mean you have a heater in your car, or is it the normal engine heat coming in? If it is the engine heat, I would say try to insulate the firewall and put in a floormat. That will take some heat. Removing the hood might also help. One thing I have found helpful when driving a non airconditioned car in summer heat is leaving all windows open and carrying a spray bottle along and spraying the face and clothing with water from time and letting the wind evaporate the water to keep cool.
Steve question? pipes wrapped? whats this on?

sorry but its a fact.
Do you have engine pans on each side of your engine? They are meant to keep mud and dust from the road out of your engine compartment, but also trap the heat and keep it from escaping out of the engine compartment. As you can imagine there is no place for that heat to go except through the openings in the firewall and floor. If you remove the engine pans you may feel a big difference as the heat will be able to escape under the car. The other thing might be to purchase a thermal heat blanket from a welding supply place and install it against the firewall from the inside of the car. Jim Patrick
When driving my Tudor in the heat of the day, I only run with the front window open. The air coming in the front window pressurizes the interior and stops the engine heated air from coming in around the pedals. Open any window even an inch or two and the heat comes rolling in.
I just got the pedal boot that Langs sells and it's AMAZING. When you combine that with my rubber floor mat the heat is way better than it was before.
Will insulate the firewall and wooden floor boards, and pedals , with that front windshield open should help a bit, it's a C cab truck. New radiator , so the moto meter runs low , but that inside heat is a bit much , I could take the hood off
