Also, after doing the same swap a few years ago and finding that the heater core wasn't shaped just right, you can try altering the plastic case that the core sits in. That's a heck of a lot better than bending pipes and risking another leak.

Well I got a heater core from autozone & and the aftermarket tube size is slightly smaller than the unit that was in there and the tubes weren't positioned quite right so I took it back and ordered one from a place on the net called AMC Northwest In Texas right before thanksgiving, it just arrived today. The guy said they are OEM units and they even come with foam in the box but not on the unit for condensation or to keep it from rattling or what ever it's on there for. So I said ok I ordered one and just like I figured it was exactly like the one that Autozone sells for 35.00 except I paid double that for a supposed OEM unit and it doesn't even have the foam like he said. The guy Is a Liar don't buy anything from them!!! So the guy is supposed to send me a shipping label to return it.
I guess I'll go back to autozone for the 35.00 one and get on with it.

Well I got it mostly back together tonight it went a lot faster putting it back together except for the steering column which I can't seem to get back in. I had to do quite a bit of cutting on the heater core case to get
that aftermarket core back in someone should start a class action law suit
against the company that makes them, Idiots! I think A Chimp could do a better job of making an aftermarket heater core.

Any suggestions on getting the Lands back in the Grooves so I can bolt the steering column back up? I greased it up pretty good and even shoved a screwdriver in part of it to expand it a little with no luck.
I spent more time trying to get it back in than all the rest of it.

Thanks Howard

Steering column is back in. I put the key in the ignition & that helped me
get the two piececs to mate a lot easier by letting me turn the bottom half of the steering column & or shaft. I'm ready to roll now.
Thanks For everyone's help. Howard

I know this is an old thread but I can't really find the info I need. Before I go tearing my only 4 wheeled vehicle apart. I'd like to know if this dash removal procedure is necessary for pulling off just the dash pad in my 91 vert? I know about the dash covers on eBay/online but I don't want a dash cover. I'd much rather pull off the dash pad section (the soft part that always cracks) and refinish it so I can layover a material of my choosing.

Here's the dash removal procedure I've found online ⬇
