Yep, that's not a fun job, but when my blower motor gave up the ghost I decided to replace my heater core while I was in there. It wasn't leaking yet, but I figured that this is not going to be fun if it starts and the OE unit was almost 40 years old. The issue was finding a good quality USA made copper/brass core unit instead of the more commonly found aluminum units. Everything I've read about the aluminum units is that they're not lasting as long as the copper/brass core.
