Hey guys, just going through some things and I'm curious if I'm missing anything here. I replaced the heater core many years ago and it seems odd that this cavity where the tubes protrude through is open like this (see picture below). I realize that further inside, it's more or less sealed with some foam insulation that blocks the opening between the tubes and the HVAC box... but it seems like there should be a cap or something on the outside here. Any ideas, I can't remember?


Thanks!!

None I have ever seen by GM had anything more than the foam, but it did come as close as possible to the outside of the entry hole and sealed it, even when I was at the factory.

Thanks Steve... it was such a long time ago that I changed it out, and my skills were far less than desirable back then... there must have been some foam in there then that I threw out... real smart of me.

over the years that stuff rots and if you did it like I do something's, start it last month and finish it next month, things get misplaced or lost as well as well as forgetting how things go when you put them back together. one of the things I like about todays digital photography if you take enough pictures you can put them into your computer, then when you go back to it you can go back to those pictures and blow them up to see just how things went, Christ if it weren't for pictures I take before hand and Ziploc baggies that I put parts in and label now when I take things apart I would never get anything back together. at least not the right way.

Yeah, I totally agree... that's what I've been doing on my site... I totally re-did my site this week:

http://www.PontiacPerformance.net

and I noticed that it just seemed like there was a void there. The heater core was something I changed out like over a decade ago quite honestly... no idea what I did then. Everything now is just as you say... pictures and ziplock bags! I just wish I did that back in the day... even Polaroids would have been nice...

Nice, but your garage is to clean for me, I can fix that for you if your like, just give me an hour and you won't be able to find a thing, or have room enough to work on anything.
