BB Heater Core

Hey,

I am in the process of my SB to BB install and when I pulled the heater core that had the pipes coming out the side, I started wondering about when I put in the BB core and cover that seem to have the pipes coming out the middle of the box. I have yet to find a good pic of a BB heater box on the firewal to see what they do with the holes on the side. Do these get capped and covered or ???

Thanks,

Bill

Re: BB Heater Core

Most people I have spoken with on this subject will cover them up with a fiberglass filler or cap them with a thin piece of sheet metal and paint them to match the heater box. It's all a matter of preference really. As long as you are happy with it, it's cool.

FWIW, I bought the heater core and heater box and plan on doing that SBC to BBC conversion with some luck later this year.

Re: BB Heater Core

The holes in the firewall got covered by a closed-cell foam block. The factory just glued it over the holes, from the inside of the car.

Re: BB Heater Core

Eric, thanks for the response. Is there a place you recommend buying the foam? I wasn't crazy about the sheet metal idea some people suggested.

I just bought a heater box seal kit, and the foam block was part of it.
