Heater Box Question

Hey guys, i'm hoping you can help me... i'm in the midst of replacing my heater core and i have the front end off of my 67: I took the heater box cover off of the outside of the firewall, and i was wondering if i have to seal that up when i bolt everything back together... what did you guys use for that job? Thanks, and i hope someone can help....

Re: Heater Box Question

I used 3M strip caulk when I did my buddy's. You can get it at any auto body supply, and probably at any big auto parts store..

Re: Heater Box Question

A round bead of silicone around the cover will do.

Re: Heater Box Question

I used GE Silicone in Black. It is a nice neat and clean job with a terrific seal. You will not be disappointed.

Re: Heater Box Question

I am not a fan of silicone and auto bodies meeting. I used 3M seam sealer on mine.

Re: Heater Box Question

Speaking of Heater box covers...
I'm trying to get a few things done while my motor is out. One of the things I'm doing is installing a BB heater core. This had a SB core originally which is missing. I have the new heater core, and I was getting ready to order the BB cover. When I look at the pics, it looks like the only difference is that the BB cover has the plumbing holes located in the middle. If that's true, can I cut two holes in the existing SB cover and just buy the gasket kit?

Two weeks 'till she goes in for paint!
