Heater cores

Has anyone ever heard of Four Seasons heater cores? If so, are they any good? I was just thinking that since I am changing the coolant type, rather than flush the heater core, replace it, since they are not the greatest to begin with and the one in there is almost 9 years old... If no one has heard of them, what is the best one to get?

Thanks

Maybe any aftermarket cores are better than the Ford OE ones?

The main thing if you replace it is to ground the core to prevent electrolytic erosion. Just a simple hose clamp with a wire to ground on one of the core tubes is all you need. Cheap, simple prevention. Have fun!

BTW, I can swap my 97 Bird's heater core in under 6 hours now. Nothing like learning from experience!

God Bless and Fly Low!
