Cowl Screen ??

Weather permitting, I'll be replacing my heater core tomorrow. I remember reading on the other list a long time ago about using screening between the cowl and the duct gasket. It sounds like a good idea, but I'm not sure if the screen sandwiched between the gasket and the cowl will give any kind of seal. Any thoughts on this? Cleaning the heater core is easy enough, but that only treats the symptom, not the disease.

Re: Cowl Screen ??

BTW... I was concerned about the quality of the heater core I was getting from Auto Zone. Even with a lifetime warranty, who wants to pull everything out twice. The core I received from AZ was a GDI (Go Dan Industries # 39-8331) for $52. Farrrrrrrr cheaper than anywhere else I looked.....
Not too shabby.......

Re: Cowl Screen ??

I recently cleaned my heater core out and now I can roast nuts --literally! My heater gets so hot I can only keep it on low and sometimes I still have to open the window. Whomever wants to complain about the heat in a Sami only needs to ride around in mine for the day then they'll just realize that everything needs a GOOD cleaning.

Re: Cowl Screen ??

I put screens in every truck I work on for the heat problem and what i do is put a small bead of silicone on the seal first and then squish the screen on. Then use the housing clips to hold the screen in place (don't pull the screen to tight) then run one more bead around the screen and put it in place. this works great and I recomend it anyone that is going to rip out the box to do a cleaning.

Re: Cowl Screen ??

Yodazuk, you gave me an idea.... I cut my screen (brass) to the inside lip dimension and then carefully installed the gasket. This way the gasket holds the screen in place. I then took silicone and ran a bead betweeen the gasket and the screen to secure it. When I install the unit, I'll run another bead of silicone on the gasket. So far, so good. Thanks for the idea....

Re: Cowl Screen ??

Only porblem with that is the leaves and such can drop below the top cowl and still be a pain to get out.But if you put it on the outside of the seal then it is right up against the cowl and nothing falls in.....good luck!!
