  • Cool/Heat: 1964 Heater Control Valve

    I just got a new heater control valve for my '64 Daytona V8. I took my old one out 12 years ago when I started my restoration. I's not sure if the hose that goes from the engine to the value is from the top of the water pump housing or the one on the side. I think it was the top, but want to make sure. I also don's know what to do with a brass tube that comes from the valve. Is it just loose under the dash? What does it do?

    Thanks.

    The "Ranco" Valve is a Automatic Valve when in any control position between Full ON and Full Off. So the Bourbon Tube allows it to Control the Cabin Temp. automatically.
    Route it along the Cardboard Glove Box liner and it may have a small clip near the end to fasten it to the box or anything softer and warmer than Steel so it does not rattle. It may reach to the Def. /Floor Air Distribution Fiberglass Duct to be secured.

    Once you understand which way the Flow in the Block and Heads goes, it is easy to know where the Hose goes.
    You are correct, the Top Water Manifold Fitting is the Hottest Water returning to the Radiator to be cooled so it MUST go to the Valve to be controlled.

    There are LOTS of '59/'60 Lark and Champ Truck owners out there, not as smart as you!

        Rich, are you saying all the Studes in the pics you show are plumbed backwards?

            I am sure that he meant Bourdon tube. I also got a laugh out of it (I like Bourbon.).
