Heater Core Installation

Recommended Posts

What do I use to seal the Casing to the firewall (engine side). There was some type of silicone or something before. I'm not sure what type to use. Thank You.

If your wife ever says "Come and move this transmission so I can take a bath," You might be a Gearhead.

The correct stuff to use has the nickname

"Dumb Dumb". I have a buddy who is restoring a Corvette and he gave me some. I think GM still makes it.

If you phoned a glass shop they would have a similar product that would seal the casing.

Hi Aaron, the dumb dumb seal works the best, it is similar to plumbers putty. Lordco sells it in boxes - I believe it is made by Proform . They are round strips about 1 foot long and about the thickness of a pencil. Each strip fits directly in the groove of the heater core cover and once you tighten the cover on it forms to the shape of the firewall.

Hey Aaron, well you set foot in there at least once that I know of. Maybe next year it will be all back together in one piece and you can rubber neck it for me. smile.gif

 

I am still hoping to get down your way soon. Hopefully, during the Langley show.
