Its late and my brain may not be working, but wondering if anyone else sees this as a problem?

I was putting the heater box together, and in addition to the new drake foam kit I bought the foam ends for the heater hore.

Had to cut bits off the end where the pipes come off as they were butted up to the core and there was no where for the foam to sit between the pipes and the core



Got it back together and noticed the pressure of the end foam pushing the heater core over with the pipes now hard up against the casing, and pipe themselves now exiting at an angle....





Is this an issue? should I just pull the end foams off and forget about them? The box is fibreglass and brittle (you can see a crack in it already - was there when I bought it) but broke another bit of it tonight without trying to hard. So am just concerned out the pressure of the core up against it? Confused

It will be fine. Once it gets heat the foam will give way. They were never straight anyway.

The Aussie heater boxes of the era were a precision instrument compared to the mustang boxes. As Kerry says She'll be right Matey!

From my understanding, the foam ends are only for the heater core in a/c boxes. Non a/c heater boxes didn't use them.

Basically yes, but you need time to get the levers perfect for the open and close action of the flaps or you will get hot air coming through all the time.
