Refurbishing 1965 F100 heater box

My heater core was leaking, so I bought a new one last summer. When I went to install it, I realized that all the foam and rubber seals had disintegrated. I just left it unhooked.

I finally got around to buying a kit ($18) to finish the job, and figured I'd post pictures and show how the job goes.

I took the box out of the truck yesterday. Here it is, along with the kit, before I get started.

Where did you get the kit? Something I found out to restore a new look to the rubber isolater around the fan motor is to soak it in some stuff called evaporust. Makes it look like new.

Looks good, thanks for the tip!

I had read before that these kits for the early broncos work. The company is a few miles from me in Knoxville, so I went by and bought a kit. I do not know how much shipping is.

It seems like it's got everything we need.

Heater Box Clip

There is a clip that retains the heater core. For the life of me I cannot see how this goes on. Anyone got an idea. I kept the clip and tied the core to the box with zip ties. I know that is not correct but really, I cannot figure out this clip.

Here is the exploded parts diagram. Hope this helps.

I used Liquid Nails silicone to attach the foam to the flappers inside the box. It wasn't pretty, but hopefully will last for a while. I decided to use liquid nails because it said it could be used on foam. I didn't take the plate off the back of the box, so I just sort of got my hands in there where I could and finessed it through.

As you can see, the pieces were all cut to fit our boxes perfectly. Even the holes lined up just about perfect on all pieces.

The rest of these pictures just show how the pieces fit together. I had to trim down one of the large rectangular foam pieces, but other than that, they fit pretty good.

I cleaned up the box a little bit, but didn't get into any sort of "restoration." I mainly just wanted the heater to be as functional as it could be.

This post was to show the kit for the early broncos in action. It seems like it does work for our standard heater box. Total cost $25.
