    1st Gen Heater Core

    PO removed the whole heater/defrost assembly because he thought the core was leaking. Could have been bad hoses or connections??? Is there a good old backyard way of testing if it leaks??

    Anyway, does this look like the correct core? Since it's all taken apart, maybe I should just replace it. Or send out the original to a reman company? Anybody know a good place?

    A radiator shop will test it also.

    I did not - That photo is from a fellow vanner.

    At a higher cost I had taken mine to the radiator shop.

    Dennis,

    I saw that as well, but the picture they show is different, it seems all the sellers show the same generic picture for these cores. I think I'll order from Rock Auto, thanks. If it's not right I'll send it back.
