Any detailed instructions for heater core replacement on a 63?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for any detailed help to replace the heater core in a 1963 Riviera. I've tried googling it and nothing came up so if someone can help I'd really appreciate it.

As I recall, the ROA publishes just such a guide. The Riviera was essentially built around the heater core.

Hi Jim,

We received your New Member App via PayPal e-check on

Thursday October 4th. We had to wait for PayPal to send

us a "all clear" on your e-check, which they sent us on

Wednesday October 10th. Your "New Member Packet" was

sent to you via USPS this past Friday, October 12th.

The heater core information is available on our website

in the "Members Only" section ..... e-mail me directly

at the ROA Office and I will give you the info to access

this data.

Thanks,

Ed

Jim,

Contact your chiropractor now and make a couple of advance appointments, then go to the nearest pharmacy and buy plenty of bandaids, and antibacterial ointment. You might as well get a big bottle of aspriin for your headaches while you're there.

You're not kidding either. I finally got it put in and I'm literally hurting all over but it's one less thing to worry about.

I looked at doing it from the engine side but the thought of hacking up the firewall just didn't seem right.

I didn't have to hack up anything. I still needed to remove nuts from the interior side to remove the core shroud. It was not as tough a job as it was on my 1975 Chevy Blazer...now that was a pain in the neck!
