    Default Heater control valves

    I noticed Shelly say he had replaced the heater control valves in his Mark ll. I haven't had much luck sourcing any for mine(they won't fully close anymore) and was wondering if there is anyone selling replacements, or am I looking too deeply instead of trying local rad shops first?

    The T-Bird vendors sell one like it that can be modified for use on a Mark II.

    Jack's catalog has them which are made for him -- I bought two, unfortunately one failed rather quickly and the other is still installed and working. That led me to keep a regular eye out on eBay. There I found two NOS with different manufacturers names and they perform well. They are usually listed on ebay as a Lincoln, Mercury or t-Bird part.

    Barry, I didn't realize that the ones that the TBIRD houses sell have to be modified. Would you please explain? Thanks.

    I believe there's something about it in the MIIE and mine's at work.

    Hate to drag up a 7 year old thread, but Barry mentioned that the T-Bird or CASCO valve requires modification. Any chance of digging out your MIIE and reprinting it here on the forum?
    I found the pictures of both the CASCO valve and the MarkII Enterprises valves and the only difference I can see is the threading on the CASCO valve. Of course just being pictures I have no idea of measurements of the various fittings.

    Default Quickie "Fix" for Heater Control Valves that won't close

    TOOO much heat on our feet! I was going to cut the heater tubing and throw in a 1/2 ball valve on each side. First step was then to drain the system or at least the hoses. Hmmm, no need to drain the whole system, just crimp the hose on both sides where I want to cut the line and insert the valve. Okay, I can crimp the rubber hose with a clamp ... what do I have ... welding clamp! Clamp one and now to clamp the other ... wait now!! I just sealed the system the same as adding a valve! Job done and nothing that can't be undone in a flash and now I can take the wife on the AACA car tour tomorrow without burning her feet!

    Cheers guys!
