    Leaking heater core : ( oh no the replacement job is one that you have to decide whether the cars a keeper a parts car or you bypass the core and hope you never have a froggy or a rainy day.

    That's why it was a project car, someone else knew it wasn't a keeper! Same with every car designed.

    Should be able to buy a u shape hose, remove the ones from the motor hell I would take the whole heater tap off and cut the rubber off the heater and get it out of the way, then just put the u hose on the outlet and inlet of the engine. If its on gas then just run the hoses to the regulator.
