The heater core is located under the hood in the heater box where the blower motor is. Remove the heater hoses then the box can be unbolted and removed.
There is a valve which controls the flow of coolant to the heater core, which is a small radiator located inside the passenger compartment. If this valve is open, hot coolant will be pumped into the heater core, which will get hot and warm the air passing over it. If the lever or temperature selector in your vehicle does not control that valve, then the cable is broken, or the electrical control device is not working.
To replace the battery on a 1979 Corvette, disconnect the battery cables using the proper tool. Remove the bar that holds the battery in place and pull out the battery. Place the new battery in and reconnect the cables.
If this is the original heater core it may be stuck to the firewall and you will have to pry it off. Make sure that there are no other bolt holding it!!!
Not without modification
I am not sure, but it sounds like your heater core may be leaking. You may be lucky, and only have a hose leak. But most of the time its the core that goes bad and needs fixed or replaced. You may check under your hood and look at the two hoses that go into the fire wall on the right side of the car. If your lucky one may be leaking at the clamp and only need to replace that clamp. But most of the time it will be the heater core in the fire wall that's the problem and need's replaced or fixed. If you need to drive the car before getting it fixed. You can take both the hose's off the core at the fire wall. And connect them both together with a two or three inch pipe and two clamps. This way you can still drive your car until you get time to have it fixed. Be ware though that by placing both hoses together you will not have a heater. Good Luck M.C.S. The Missouri Crack Shot.......
there are 15 crews on a 78 and 79
I doubt it. The C2, was much shorter than the C3. However, never tell a hot rodder he cannot do something....
You picked an extremely difficult one.......It would be best to get a Chilton's or Haynes for this. I will tell you that it requires pulling the passenger side fender and inner fender well to gain access to it. Some of the later models....such as your '79 have an impression in the fender well that you can cut and bend down to gain access. When done, you bend it back up and seal it.
boy you sure picked a good one i know this sounds bad but its the easiest way i found first remove your hood followed by your passengerside fender to get to all the bolts you need next remove the heaterr hoses next unbolt the housing and remove the outside half unfortunately you now have to go inside and remove the glove box and the ductwork from the passengerside as well you should be able to see the heater core by now if it still has the factory heater core it will probably be stuck (i used a small pry bar)after alot of twisting and turning it will com out if yours does like mine did but dont worry to much 'cause the new one slipped right in Good luck man and if it not to much trouble roll'em one time for me
buy a Haynes manual or use the manuals available at a public library
Not exactly. '75 used a "dual securing clamps" for each T-Top. '79 T-Tops were redesigned with a "single securing clamp" for each side.
Should be on the top of the left side of the dash underneath the windshield. Check the inner driver's door jamb also.
blue or orange is both possible check for numbers at back top of motor next to trans i believe that 75-79 corvette engines were painted blue originally. i know for a fact 79 is blue but I cannot remember which year it started.
I have an assembly manual. If you tell me which portion of the wiring diagram you need I may be able to help. Email me.
I'm not sure exactly where it is in a 78.....but in my 79 it's on the drivers side under the dash in the fuse box.
The blower motor on all 70-81 Firebirds and T/As is located behind the passenger side fender. Complete pain to change. The best way is to pull the hood and the passenger side fender and inner fender well. Some people simply cut a hole in the inner fender well to get to the fan and heater core. Suggestion.....if you do either of these procedures, change out the heater core while you are in there. Save you from doing it again when it finally goes.
Something that is not a stock engine. The highest performance engine for that year was the L-82 cranking out an anemic 210 hp.
MY 79 HAD A SWITCH NEAR THE DRIVERS LEFT KNEE just flip and service the h/lampd
What year? Most are rear disc from some where around 79 and on?
