    Heater core replacement

    Found a NOS heater core to replace mine that was leaking. The NOS unit came from http://www.dpmotorparts.com/. $175 plus shipping, which I didn't think was a bad deal for keeping things original. There cannot be many of these left - took me a while to find one.

    Boy, this was not easy to get to however! Thought about what else we could do under here while everything was apart. Looked at replacing the blower motor, but the original unit actually looked like it has a lot of life left, so we left it alone.

    Back together now, making good heat. Just in time to get tucked away for the winter.

    I'll take a good original blower motor over an aftermarket replacement any day. The quality of the replacements is sketchy at best, from my experience at work anyways.
