Answer Hi Bill,
I do have the '91 manual for the AC body (Dynasty) and it shows indeed that to replace the heater core that the HVAC box has to come out and that involves a 24-step process in each direction to accomplish and involves disassembly of a good deal of the underdash. I can xerox copy and postal mail you the pages that show those steps. Have you considered trying Bar'r Leak to seal the leak in your core? I would recommend that you do that and see if it might work.
PS Thanks for the kind remarks and the rating/nomination.
