  • Heater valve repair.

    Does NAPA still sell the repair kits for the climatizer valves,or does anyone have a good used one for a C/K? I just had a guy knock on my door driving a 55 President. He is from around Dillon,SC. I gave him a Turning Wheels and told him about the forum. I bypassed his heater and he will be dropping the cars off next week for some minor repairs and general service.

      Every time I go and check on my Mom's house, I drive through South of the Border. The owner has maed a fortune there and with his advertising business. He also owns a beer distributor.
