I bought a set of stainless steel heater tubes from a vendor who strongly recommended that I replace the steel tubes. After removing the shifter linkage and shifter box, I can now see into the tunnel and I'm having second thoughts about trying to remove the heater tubes.
The tubes run through two sets of brackets which seem to be solidly welded to the tunnel. To try and remove them looks to be a nightmare of a job that once started, there's no turning back.
It bugs me not being able to replace the tubes as I have a freshly built engine and will be installing a new aluminum radiator, new aluminum pressure and overflow tanks as well as new stainless steel water tubes.
My heater tubes have some corrosion at the ends on the outside and inside, but they look pretty intact. When hooking up a hose they seem to flow water freely.
I was wondering if there was any type of material that I could run through them to remove the corrosion inside and prevent them from further corrosion. Since I'm on the east coast, I definately want to be able to use the heater. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
