Default Heater Core leak, need help

I have a 79 ford f-150 that has a leaky heater core. my problem is that the plastic piece that encloses the heater core is rivited together I was wondering if there were any easy ways to put a new core in.

clcik this link:

https://elibrary.mel.org/validate?ur...ch%3Fdb%3DCHLL

sign on with your DL number
select year, make, model
select "repair"
follow path: Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning > Heater Core > Removal & Installation
select which system you have

you didnt say which system you have, so thats the best I can do for you, except that the rivets you see are not to remove the heater core, the plates are held on with screws...unless someone had replaced the screws with rivets sometime in the last 30 years
