Heater core replacement
Finished the heater core replacement. It was challenging but not terribly difficult, in a technical sense. The core itself was a chore to get in the blower box. They disassembly of the dash was easy enough. I took pictures on the parts I was sure I would wonder “where did that go?”.

The hardest part seemed to be putting the heater supply hoses back on. They are plugged into the heater core at the firewall behind the engine. I found it easier to remove the hood (bonnet) to get to them. I would say this is imperative, but there is someone out there I’m sure who did this and didn’t need to remove the bonnet.

Heat is good. Read about it here.
