      Well the 3/4 by 3/4 pex barb to barb fitting was $3.27 at Ace hardware.
      Its not pretty but I can at least drive it until my parts come in.
      Who needs a heater in a convertible?...in winter?
      At least it doesn't snow in Santa Cruz.

      I used to visit my brother up in Bolder Creek, that's before we parted ways on his left coast politics. He has moved out to the desert below San Diego. I miss going down to the wharf and getting shrimp, and the Amusement Park, and a free concert by some of the orginal Doobie Brothers.

        speaking of heater cores, i need some advice. I installed a brand new heater core from autozone into my 1972 dart about 12 years ago. The car has been driven only about 500 miles since then and the thing started leaking into my floor. SO, i am in need of another new core. Anyone know where to buy a GOOD one that will last?
