CJ Heater Core Removal?

I have an 86 CJ and my heater core is leakin' like a siv. I've looked at a blow-up diagram of the heating system however after looking at it and my Jeep I haven't a clue on how to get the heater core out. I know you must remove all of the plastic housing, but where are the bolts to do this? Please help

Now is an excellent time to spend the $20 and upgrade the blower motor to the (1982 Blazer?) GM one - this is an easy mod with enlarging the hole in the firewall the only thing required - This will give you AT LEAST twice the air movement of the stock unit.

Steve-O,

Are you sure it's a '82 Blazer??? Full-size or S-10?

I'll check my saved e-mails when I get home - I'm thinking one of them has the actual part number. I remember going to my local auto parts and asking for one for a K-5 Blazer though. My friend just parted out a Suburban and he gave me the blower motor and it looks exactly the same.

Im thinking of installing a better fan motor. Could you find the part number so I don't cut out a larger hole than necessary when I get started? Just to be sure
