    yeah its not a hard swap, just a lot of work for a 30 dollar part, follow the instructions that someone laid out here and you'll be set

    I just replaced mine in December right after buying my '77. It's really not that hard a job. I replaced one in a '84 k2500 that I used to own also. The first time is the hardest because you dont know what your in for. I would never try to do all those axle swaps that many of you do - but the heater core was no big deal. Good luck - you'll do a great job. Get a Chilton Manual.

    That was really not hard. Started around 1:00, finished around 3:30, all except for putting the inner fender back in and sealing up the firewall again...need to get some putty. I think the difficulty of this project has really been inflated...I know I couldn't have done it two years ago though.

    Hey Grim - if your interested, there isn't really anything on the later models inner fender, just metal line you need to disconnect...it might go to the tranny or AC, don't remember. Also, I didn't need to touch the computer, it is high enough that its out of the way..
