New member model 85 heater question

Postby Hine63 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 7:20 pm

Hello. Im not sure if this is where i should post this, but I would like to start off by saying that there is a lot of great info on this forum. I bought a 1963 D100 short bed 225/6 4 speed in January and this site has been very helpful. So far I have done a rear axle flip using a 8 3/4 from a '73 coronet wagon and '85 chevy 1500 rear springs along with minor things like a slave cylinder and starter and I have been tinkering with the drivers door latch.
The truck has a model 85 heater that needs a new core and valve. What is the correct way to disassemble the box itself? It is out of the truck but I can't seem to find a good way in. Am i missing something? Any info is much appreciated.
And while I'm here I want to show off this "star" wheel i made.

I used 1018 cr steel round bar and machined it at work in an old Bridgeport with a dividing head. The latch assembly is just tacked together for now because I wasn't sure it would work haha. Seems to work fine after I reversed previous adjustments to the door.
