Hello TheSamba,

Does anyone know what the front heater box interior dimensions are?

I've found the dimensions of the actual heater core, however, I know that some adhesive foam is used to fill in the gaps around it. I'd like to know the overall dimensions.

Quoted from: New front heater core, $50.

The dimensions of the Vanagon front heater core are:

17-1/4" (including end tanks, but not including inlet/outlet tubes) x 6-3/16" x 1-15/16" - 5/8" inlet/outlet

That length above is the actual overall length, but I am pretty sure that the dimensions listed on that site are the actual core dimensions, so the end tanks are not taken into consideration nor are the inlet/outlet tubes.


Thanks!

Didn't measure my heater box when I had it apart earlier this year, but can tell you the core is not a sloppy fit inside the box section where it resides.
Not that much foam around the sides of the core either, maybe 1/4" thick on either end of the long measurement of the core. I used the one from Van Cafe.

What is your plan, different core or other heater box mod.?

Thanks for the info - that helps. I'm retrofitting an A/C evaporator and a smaller heater core.
