Update: heater core replacement completed. Only another five hours today(!). This project was NOT fun. Good luck to others who will need to do this. One tip I learned: before reinstalling the padded lower dash pad, re connect the heater control rod arm to the heater control via laying on your back on the front seats, look up into the backside of the dash where you can easily see the male end of the heater control. Next carefully remove one of the switches on the control panel next to the heater control (i suggest the hazard switch) now you can orient the rod via your left and right hand's/fingers from the front and back of the dash and get it into place without guessing. After this workout, I'm almost ready to tackle cylinder head gasket. Of course you know I will probably end up pulling the engine out and doing a top end overhaul.
