Cowl vent

Hi guys, before I get started on removing the vent screen on the cowl vent are there any tricks to the removal? Thanks. Richie

    Forgot to mention it's a 53 Hornet. Thanks.

    It's very simple, the screen slides of upwards off tracks on the side after removing that one screw in the top center of the screen. Reinstall by angling it back onto the tracks from above, slide down and put the screw back in.

    I got the cowl screen off, no problem. The reason I was doing this is the heater puts out warm air on the pass. side of the heater box and cool air on the dr. side. I thought somehow something got thru the vent and was blocking one side of the heater core. I could not feel anything down inside the vent. I don't see how it would make any difference what position the heater hoses go onto the heater core, but, the Super Six heats very nicely and the Hornet doesn't. On the S.S the heater hose from the water pump goes onto the top connection on the heater core and the Hornet is just the opposite.  Both hoses (in and out) on the heater core are very hot, can't hold them more than a few seconds. Any ideas why heater puts out cold air on the pass. side only? Thanks. Richie.

    Heater core has partial blockage from scale and desposits, most likely.
