  • Need a heater control valve

    I evidently haven't asked the right person yet so I'll try a wider audience.

    I am looking for a cable operated heater control valve for a 1939 President.
    Relevant part numbers AC 1-80 and 678781.

    I will be in South Bend at Ted Harbit's area if you can bring. Used/new I'm not that picky.

        Lark,

        I recently shuffled thru the pages of heater valves that NAPA offers. (Dey's got pitcurs even!) I was looking for one for this 61 Cruiser I have and I found what looks like an able substitute for what was used originally.
        Actually, I bought it and another one just because it looked like it might well come in handy one day - both are cable operated.

        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            Thanks Frank, I'll do that.

            Biggs, your NAPA must have a better catalog than mine but I did get kind of specific on inlet outlet requirements if I had to go generic. I did pick up a manual valve to use until I get the right one, so thanks for that. I just don't lean on NAPA source as often as I should. They are the only ones that pull out the old catalogs in this small town with four FLAPS.

            They stock "Enginekool" (a cooling system additive that aids heat transfer) for $5.99/quart. Rilly gud stuf for the old low pressure systems. Thaat's a lotttttt cheaper than the speed catalog stuff.

            It's possible I may not need to use the heater in South Bend. Global warming, you know.
