I've got an old Acu-Heat 100-H with a leaking core. Anyone know what model and year car this core is from so I can get a replacement at an auto parts store?

If its a two port, you can replace the whole unit for $135

I took mine out of the aluminum bread box and took the core to a radiator shop. They had a comparable, and away I went. Can't remember the numbers now, and they may not match anyway, so my advise would be to drill out the rivets (on the box), remove the core, and take it to a shop. Save the foam wrap that is around the core so the replacement will be snug in the box as well. I used self tapping screws to put the box back together once the new core was in place. Hooked hosed up and I was on my way. Good luck

Can also get a complete replacement from skidim for $110 (http://www.skidim.com/products.asp?dept=1020) without the fan. Depending on the unit and how happy you are with the fan, the Summit unit may be a better value. If it is just a leak, I would probably try an autoparts store or/and radiator shop as suggested above.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I ended up getting a new core that has slightly different tubes, but same overall core size. Gonna work out better than the original I think.
