"90 Pro Chem Legend. Blower exhaust radiator, heater, leaks. What issues could I run into if I bypass the heater core? ( until I pull it and have it repaired, again) I don't quite understand what its purpose is in the first place. The engine exhaust heater seems to be the primary heat source. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

You can Bypass the heat exchanger however it will delete the heat. You can have the exchanger repaired and bolt it back in... or you can leave it bypassed/rip it out completely and get a fuel fired heater like Little Giant etc

It's a preheater the blower exhaust warms the cold water coming into the system.
