CJ7 Heater Core Plenum/housing removal

Swapping my Heater core plenum/box w/ actuators into a newer tub. But for the life of me I cannot find a nut, bolt or screw under the dash to take it apart. Are they suppose to be taken apart from the firewall side? Note: this jeep has had lots of fab work so... not sure if they covered up the nuts and bolts.

4 nuts on the engine side of the fire wall.

Look for (4) 1/4" studs with a nut and probably a star washer on them.

Now would be a good time to install a Chevy Blazer fan motor. Huge increase in air flow. And a low dollar project that has a good return.

I found it a ton easier to remove the passenger seat to get the box installed

Agreed. A $22 motor and some labor to enlarge the firewall hole that's there now.

if youd even call it labor, took less than a minute with a high speed rotary file. Oh and if you do the upgrade i got mine from a 77 blazer at oreillys. if it has a heat sink collar on just slide it off before you grind the hole to keep from making the hole too large. then just slide it back on after its throught the fire wall.
