Replacement Heater Core

My heater core is leaking. It is not the hose connections (they are tight), it is the heater core itself that appears to have spring a leak.

I have not pulled the housing off yet. I would like to be able to order & have a new core in hand so I can re-assemble it without having to wait for the existing core to be rebuilt.

Does anyone have a part number?

Thanks,

Jeff

Jeff unfortunately I do not have a part number for a heater core. ACME the company who manufactured the Heating and A/C is out of business. The only things I can recommend is contact a Radiator Repair facility and take the old core to them and they can build a new one. They can usually build a new heater core in one day. They may also be able to find a new replacement for you.

Thanks Dave. Seems like I will likely end up doing just that. I have to believe that WRV used a "off the shelf" core that was used in something else and was hoping that someone would know what it was. It's about time to put the unit away for the winter so might be spring before I take a crack at it.

Check Mill Supply at STEPVANPART.com These people sell lots of parts for step vans, and have pictures of many different heater cores. You may find that yours is available.

Great source for replacement parts. I wish I had seen this when I was dealing with my dash heat controller.
