Heater box install

i took my heater box out last summer and was wanting to reinstall it for the winter and was wandering if i install the heater box and heater core and hook all the plugins up will my heat work? The reason for taking the heater box out was to lose wait for racing.

Did it work before you took it out? If you put it back in the way you took it out it should work just fine.

Have you bleed the air out of it? As long as coolant is getting pumped into the core it should get hot.

He said he wanted to lose wait, not weight.
