110 heater core, REALLY??

I'm dealing with the least of issues on the 110, I pulled the heater box and there is no apparent means of replacing the core. I'm going to cut the top off and make up a plate with screws. Before I do that, is there a magic trick I'm missing...

Thanks for your thoughts

Drill the rivets. Seal up all of the joints, replace core and re-rivet.

You just have to drill the rivets top and bottom. The core is just held in with two plates.

Thanks guys. I was cutting while you were responding. Don't know why it wasn't designed with a screw on top plate, but I guess that would have been easy.

And while you are at it, does anyone know of whether there is a higher capacity heater core out there that can fit in the factory location? I know there are mods written up about upgrading the blower fan.

Alliisport does one. It is very expensive. Usually they are not setup properly. Get it setup so that there is no cold air bypassing the core and it is not too bad.

Also seen people use two cores back to back. But that takes a bit more work to create the space.

Living in ME, I think the best 800 I ever spent on the 110 was for an Espar Airtronic D2.
Being in NYC that may be money well spent too if you drive it through the winter.
