    And I DID NOT like removing the AC box. That was probably the most difficult job I've ever done on an old car. Miserable task, compounded by mouse poop and fur in my eyes....

    :mad:

    It doesn't matter how much a car is or isn't run, you can figure on the radiator being plugged up. So it stands to reason the heater core can get plugged up from the same water/ antifreeze combination. Call it hard water fallout. Flushing the system at least once a year will clean out some but there is always some scale left inside.

    By the way why couldn't this type of heater core be re-cored much like a radiator? Maybe I missed this in reading this post.

    So once again you are just wrong. Tim got his a/c evaporator from AC Global and it will fit despite your being positive it would not. Thanks for maligning a company with no evidence and turning off potential customers, thus making the case for not reproducing C body components by aftermarket manufacturers. You are the problem.

    See post #177 on this page: Wyatt convinced me to destroy my 71...

    I'm glad it did fit it will make my job easier to have access to parts that fit. We have to remember that it is the after market that is trying to supply our needs and if we disparage them they will have the attitude of "F$$k You". I for one have been looking for the after market to reproduce a lot of parts that the car companies have had a strangle hold on for years.

    posted over there. Don't see a bolted back together box yet. The one I got fit in by itself like that as well but didn't allow the full box to go back together.

    You keep comparing what appears to be "fits all" components never designed to be sure they fit our particular models with parts designed and manufacturered for our specific models. There is a huge difference but your ego blinds you to that reality. Just because you took a gamble on these fits all parts and lost, it doesn't mean that the components from this manufacturer will not perform and fit well. We will see, but so far their track record is good..................

    dude, you're a riot and all right by me. :lol: Quite the online personality. Are you flying in to the C body party so you can meet us all face to face? I just saw some of the guys at the Feb swap meet.
