Kodiak Mark IV heater core

I seem to have sprung a leak in my heater. In case the core really is bad and I'm not seeing a leak from a hose connection or something, does anyone know who sells replacement heater cores for these?

Thanks guys. I guess I'll try verify the leak is internal and then pull it.

I had mine rebuilt by universal carnegie mfg in PA but it is not clear if they are still in business. 120 bucks for a new core using the tanks from my old one.

Thanks Dave. I finally pulled it after the cold spell. If I used the heater I just got a oily mist on the windshield

I sent universal carnegie an email.

Thanks. I think I'm going to bite the bullet on this one and get it rebuilt. Everything else in the system is in great shape and I'd like to keep it all stock. It's all boxed up and I just need to ship it out.

I do however need to do some thinking about a solution for the 109" heat. I have fresh footwells and want to make the cuts before galvy. It has/had a kodiak mark III iirc and the inside ducting is in pretty rough shape and I do't think I can salvage it. I want to switch to electric based heat, like a ceramic heater for the core, but want to retain the ability to draw in fresh air from outside and have stockish looking ducting on the inside. I am not sure which are the most available, but kind of like the mark IV inside bits. I think the outside housing and motor are refurbishable but haven't looked at it too closely.

I raise a hand for the venerable shin burner. They are plenty for our climate and they don't need big holes cut into the bulkhead.

The Kodiak Mark IV doesn't require any holes to be cut in the bulkhead. It uses the pedal holes on the right side.

I have been out in the woods with a good shin burner in 15 degree weather and it totally sucked. Kodak had no problems at much lower temps.

Bam! - it does need the inside pedal box hole enlarged a little but you are basically right.

Don't go out in the woods in 15 degree weather with a 2A yo. Take the RRC!

I like that. The venerable old shin burner is so good, you have to buy another vehicle in order to stay warm. That makes about as much sense as a football bat!

If it's sense you want, stay away from Land-Rover!
In the interest of full disclosure, I am not going to install the shin-burner in my project, even tho it keeps me warm enuf. The new HVAC scenario involves a big PAR blower, a Ford truck heater core and lots and lots of pipes and shyte. A Kodiak heater if Adams were designing it.

Except I replaced the footwells which came with no holes . Since I am cutting new holes I might as well choose exactly what I want.

Like Jonesy says it would help to enlarge one a little, which I just might do on the 88" while I have it out.

Enlarging the hole is in the instructions that come with a kodiak

It just depends on which Kodiak you're putting in. The Mark III does require cutting. The Mark IV is completely different and only requires the pedal holes.

I personally think the Mark IV is the most elegant of all the Kodiaks. It's the least disruptive and takes up the least space in the interior.

I like the original (I think maybe it is mark II). I have one for my 59. It sits above the tunnel cover on the bulkhead when the fuses would be on a defender.
