The heater core in the picture is the correct one for mid to late 80"s trucks. The aluminum one that is actually available does not fit in the housing. Part #399004 will fit in the housing, but the hose connections are wrong for A/C equipped vehicles. If the ones from the old core are still good, and have been soldered in, they are easy to change. If they were brazed in, they are much harder to change.

The heater core was an exact replacement fit for my 1983 Ford F150. Whole job only took an hour and I wasn't hurrying in any way. Truck now throws heat like a new one.

        Comments about CARQUEST Heater Core:

        This was about the easiest replacement part I've ever come across. From start to finish it was only about 30-40 minutes. I ordered the part online and picked it up in town. The order was ready in less than an hour and everything was as advertised. It was a good, sound quality part at a great price. I would definently use this product again and also order off line again. This was the easiest process I can remember.

          The part works great, fits nice and snug, and does exactly what it's supposed to do. I put her in and she fired right up, no problems what so ever. I love "Advanced Auto Parts". And if you have to get parts from here, always order online. The amount of time and money I have saved is substantial. Not to mention the coupon codes to save more money and get rebates. Lol, i'll never go in person again, no point when you can get the parts pretty much half off through the website. On average i save about $65.00. Always oreder online.

                    Generally the inlet and outlet on the Ready-Aire Heater Core (Part No. 398247) comes in the same size and it does not matter which way the inlet and outlet is used.

                    A:

                    Here are the dimensions:
                    Heater Core Length (in) 7.750 in.
                    Heater Core Width (in) 7.000 in.

                    Depending on your vehicle, replacing the heater core can be difficult. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                    The dimensions of the heater core depend on which vehicle it is for. For a more precise answer, I recommend contacting your local Advance Auto Parts store and seeing if they have one in stock. If they do, the representative should be able to pull it off the shelve and speak with you about it.
