I started taking out the blower motor, and I don't have to drain the water or go anywhere near the heater core. According to Chilton's I have the old style (pre 78) where the blower motor sticks out under the glove box. Just a few bolts and the motor/backing plate come right off...Will I just have to drill out the hole or fab up a new mounting plate to get the clearance I need? I'm really looking input from someone who has done this on a 77 or older.
