    Changing \'82 K-10 - A/C to non-A/C

    My A/c system was damaged (fire) to the point that I ripped it all out, ducts & all. How hard will it be to retro-fit a standard heater into the factory A/C cab on an '82 K-10?

    Thanks!
    Doc

    Once you get the non-AC heater box parts, you will quickly see that you need to patch the old hole in the firewall and cut a new one. IIRC, my patch is about 6" x 10" and has two holes drilled in it for the heater core tubes.

    I was a fair bit of work, but I'd do it again if I had to /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
