come on. who's the fastest!
About 3 hours and a six pac of "Instalation oil" /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
But I was in no hurry. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
i've already started "installation" oiling /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif now if i can just get out to the garage....
4 hours including all new weather stripping in the control box for the heater/air conditioning. What a PITA!
does it count if you have done it to the vehicle prior to??? cuz if it does i would say 1 hour, "cuz some of the pain in the a$$ parts don't go back on /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
but if its a original . i would say 2 1/2 myself
Took me a week! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
Didn't plan on destroying the AC fan plenum in the process and having to convert over to non-AC. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
4-5 hours for the first one. If I had to do it again it would be alot faster. I did do a couple saving time things last time though. when I got the box out of the dash I busted the back panel in half so only the half with the core on it has to be unbolted to get the core out. I also only have 2 bolts on the glove box door instead of 4. also instead of removing the inner fender well I think I could get to the bottom bolts with a combo of a few ujoint and extesnions.
took me the whole weekend /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif couldn't get away from the "installation oil" /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
mine took about 2 hours with a short lunch break and alot of the time was taking the lower nut under the a/c off. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif
last one i did i just drilled that stupid bottom bolt out that's down by the fender well. never put it back on either /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif i think i'll grind it off and punch it out this time. can just drill some new holes on either side of it and use some sheetmetal screws for re-installation
Did one on the wifes 90 in 2 1/2 hours. If I used air tools I could probably shave 1/2 hour off that time easily. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
About 30 min,BUT,thats in 88 SWB.Lots easier than old style. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
Took me about 2 hrs...not really rushing it...that was the first time. it really isn't hard
I just changed mine in my 89 blazer 2 days ago and was dreading doing it but it ended up only taking me an hour start to finish with no left over parts. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

7 weeks...it was one of the first things to come out and one of the last things to go back in during the diesel swap. Also swapped from A/C to non-A/C.
Mine was a little easier than most - no fender wells and no A/C.. about 1 hr replacing everything.. most of that wondering why every time I do one.. one of those cheesy aluminum bolts snaps off of the housing... theres always one!!! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
Just the heater core, it took me 30 mintues on a 80 model blazer
All FREAKING DAY course I was writing instruction for how to do it to make it easier on you guys! /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
Thanks for that by the way Grimmy! With grim's handy-dandy insructions in hand, I took the better part of ten hours. Cleaned everything, and repainted the pass side fender well too. Works like a charm ever since! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
