newbie.

i was trying to figure why my left air controls worked and the drivers side did not. as i kept chasing the problem, i found that the valve for the drivers side was frozen. i lubed it for several days and tried to force it tonight. bad idea.

the valve broke, coolant everywhere.

i took off the cover of the air box and can see both heater cores, the fan, etc.

i cannot figure how to remove core and valve, or how to remove box all together.

i will try and locate a service manual, but i am in a real jam!
any thoughts??

btw, when trying to empty the radiator, the draincock bolt busted off as well. at least that should not be too much of a fix as i should be able and take it to a rad shop for repair.

also, the scariest of all questions..... any sources for heater cores and valves, etc??

thanks

rick

Heater Box

Been on that job once, or twice.
Minor trauma, sorta easy job.
Get the correct hoses and clamps when assembl.
So, I have saved two of those from the crusher.
And would sell one, (only need one spare)
