What heater? It's an air cooled engine and heat comes through tunnels from the exhaust headers.

If your car is quipped with the auxiliary heater ,just pull the knob for it-to the left of the stick shift diagram on the lower part of the instrument panel.The light should turn green.The engine should be running to save the battery or only run it for a short time say 25 to 30 min.Or the control might be over the radio.I have seen this in the owner's manual of a '71 '73 control might be different.
