    So I had 3 heaters all of them had issues but I mannaged to get one good heater by disecting all 3 of them.I ordered all new seals , a new decal, had the sheetmetal powdercoated semi gloss black and changed out all of the sheetmetal screws to 10-24 stainless button heads. I also took apart the motor and cleaned out 50 years of muck. I was amazed at original heater core design,it looked like it was engineered to fail.The heater control valve as in a steel tube that was bolted to the side of the copper core with nothing separating the dissimilar metals..any how here is the finished project...Im overly excited about it!9353a246rebuilt my  heater Heat210rebuilt my  heater Heat111rebuilt my  heater Heat310rebuilt my  heater Heat410

    I used a 83-94 ford ranger heater core,had to make a new hole in the bottom of the box,the tubes were a little closer together.The pipe picture is non related..it was titled "heater3" when i posted the pics.its a tenon adapter.
