    If the valves work you should not need to. If they don't you should replace them. Now I had to recore the heater cores to keep my feet dry

    Given that they are located so far from the block I would doubt it. Lack of proper anti-freeze causing corrosion and scale would be more likely.

    Nope, if you dont plan to use the heaters and can find a nipple that will fit the upper tube where the valve is attached just run a hose from there to the lower tube. Once you figure what you need to fix the heater problem you can change it back.
