Heater core363 viewsHere's the heater core, in this case, it's the old leaky one I removed. Notice the small round post between the two heater hose nipples. That post must be placed into a hole in the heater box during the assembly of the new heater core. If you don't get it lined up correctly, you won't get the heater core to seat all the way into place and the screws for the heater core won't match up with their holes in the heater box.
Don't ask me how I know this.
Once the heater core is secure in its place, I'd suggest reconnecting the heater hoses and filling the radiator. After that, start and warm up the engine. Check for leaks; you sure don't want to have to tear back into all this in case something is wrong.
