Dash removed, replace heater core?

Postby mojogoat » Sun Nov 04, 2018 5:49 pm

I've been doing repairs, rewiring, and soundproofing in the cab; removed more and more till I reached a point where the dash came out with the removal of a couple of screws. What are the odds the heater will leak sometime after I put everything back together. Where do they leak? I already bought a ford heater core to mod.

I've replaced my heater core once, and I did not remove the dashboard. I'll do it that way next time, too.
