Buy a heatercore, get your dremel out and cut the barb off until theres about 1in left (some people didnt cut the barb so this is not necessary) Boil your tube and slide over it.

It will save you money and be just as good

I used a hacksaw to cut off the barbs before I got a dremel, works just as good. You can get a good heatercore for as low as $15, or if you want to go the easy route you can go with a dtek unpainted radiator. Basicly, its a chevette heatercore with barbs already attached.

Personally I'm going with the heater core from a Ford F-250.

Go to napa online and search part number: BK 4603347

5/8" inlet and outlet so I'm thinking I can make the 1/2" hose fit without too much work. It is also a little larger than the chevette and cheaper!
