Gotta do the heater core on my 93 5.0. Gonna take it to Ford. Anything I
should look/watch for. As I understand it, they basically have to do
everything but drop the tranny to get this $20 part out. lol...
====> hi brad - if you take your time, you can do it yourself, but for
the first timer, you will put in some serious hours.
but this might help you when you get the new heater core put in. put in
the restricter that the police use on their heater cores. since the
police engine will live it's life in the high rpm's on chases.
usually, the person who has the 5.0 mustang is going to put some higher
rpm's on the engine, which raises the water pressure of the cooling
system. the restricter acts as a cushion to block the shock and drop the
pressure build up to the heater core. you remember the saying about the
weakest link.... well, heater cores do rust out just like the main
radiator core. so, the pressures don't play favorites.
hope this helps,
