adding a heatercore?

this may be done or maynot be done so im sure there is someone here who will know.i was wanting to mount a heatercore from an automobile[a small one]in a sheetmetal box that i will fab myself ans put a small 12volt fan behind it for extra heat.now here is the question...i want to mount it on the hump that covers the driveline and figure i could just add a t fitting on each line going to the radiator.one on the supply and one on the return.and then just come up to the heater core .and have valves so that i could remove the core during summer.now i f done this would it interfere with the cooling abilities?

it seems like you would be adding a second radiator in a way as the heater core would be acting like one with the cool air moving over the core when the fan is on, also you would be adding more volume to your resevoir. I am sure that you will be ok and keeping warm as well. Good idea let me know how it works for you.. Bob

I believe it would be better to just tap in to the supply to the radiator, just go into your heater core then back out to the radiator. Not too sure that if you tee into the supply and return that you would still get good flow to the radiator, you would be kinda adding a bypass to the radiator.

Just a suggestion.

Just bent some diamond plate drilled some holes in the plate to bolt together then holes for the cores inlet n outlet, zip tied a 7 " fan on the box and put a 12 volt lighter plug in on the wires .The hose on the passenger side that goes to the top of the radiator is the one you want to use.I added a some extra hose on each one and zip tie them in place. the rad hose is 7/8 so it is best to find a core with 3/4 pipes and clamp them together tight.Im checking into using hydralic quick connects so if ill post that completed.
