They still use that type of dohickie today for pulling wires, we call them a sock and like that it is slipped on, when pushed its all loose but when pulled it tightens and grips the cable

You're right Mrsmackpaul, They are like a steel mesh tube that grips tighter the tighter you pull.

Well the wiring still isn't here so I decided to keep cleaning up more diseased and mouse nest infested parts.
One of them was the heater. The truck will see winter driving, so around these parts the heater will be needed.

After a couple hours of soldering due to what looks like the heater core froze and cracked the tanks and pulled apart the seams.
I pressure tested it and it seems to be fine!

Love your work. Am I right in thinking the heater inlet/outlet pipes also act as mounting bolts for the heater. That's some pretty good design thinking if they do.

Yes you are right, the pipe is actually steel and just threaded a bout 4" or so.
I reused the original mounting hardware and just added a rubber buffer pad behind the washers.

You just slide the hoses over the threaded part and clamp them down and they seal up well.
