Heater Box Seal Kits

What's everybody doing to reseal their 1st gen heater boxes that have AC too? A few places I've looked just have kits for cars w/o AC!

Larry, the non-A/C kits dont work anyway. I had to take mine apart and used sheet neoprene I got from Mcmaster-Carr. Cut it to fit and contact cemented them on the flaps and welded it back together

Re: Heater Box Seal Kits

Kevin's right. I thought that maybe even a few pieces would work. Make your own.

Re: Heater Box Seal Kits

Thanks, I will reconsider doing it myself. I resealed my heater boxes on my 66 Chevy truck and 83 Camaro with the high density house weatherstripping and the wide foam used to line the tops of truck beds for camper tops. That seemed to work quit well.

That that foam stuff that has a tar impregnated into it....works well, and for the passengers vent seal and rear tail light seals.

Or smear a layer of grease on the firewall, use silcone, a reasonbly thick strip, let tack off, then bolt up to the firewall...leave for 4 or 5 hrs then torque up the last turn or so.

The grease stops it sticking to the firewall, but lets it stick to the unit so you have a perminent gasket in place...
Works well on things like diff covers, rear tail light seals

I have used both methods very successfully, my choice as to the best depends what I have on hand at the time.

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative
