  • Cool/Heat: Heater control valve

    My 1964 Commander heater control valve is leaking, does anyone know if they make a repair kit?

      Good instructions above Tracy, just be very careful and patient. If you are uneasy doing the rebuild yourselves there is a guy in Wisconsin that does them. I don't have his info handy but a search should yield some results. Hope to see you at the January meeting in Savannah, Bill.

        Studebaker used Ranco heater control valves and the rebuild kits are available from NAPA. I rebuilt the valve in my 62 Hawk last year and if I remember correctly, the kit was around 10 bucks. The valves aren't hard to rebuild, but do take your time and be careful when doing it. Bud

          Thank you all very much. I really appreciate your help. My goal is to be there and hopefully driving my commander.

            I've sent out several valves to Joe Hudacek in WI. He advertises in Hemmings. 715-3926169.hudacekjj@ Cost about $85 and quick turn around. He did a valve for my '81 Avanti that was really beaten up and it came back looking NOS.

              Thank you very much. I will definitely have to look into that. For some reason it’s like it stopped leaking. But I think this weekend I wI’ll go ahead and look up how to remove it, my better half had rotator cuff surgery at the beginning of the month, so I know he will not be able to pull it out for me. I truly appreciate the information. Merry Christmas
