  • Ranco or Balkamp rebuild kit

    I know this has probably been beaten to a pulp in threads past, but I thought it was kinda humorous when I saw it. I am in the midst of pulling down a 55 K-body for a custom project. Before there is construction there is destruction, so each part is being taken off the car, cleaned, painted, and reassembled, so it can be used later when, and if the vehicle is put back together. Well along comes time to rebuild the heater valve, so today I pick up a rebuild kit. Here is the kit:

    My own reply when I saw this kit was "you have to be joking, I must be missing something in the box"[)]. I have rebuilt things like the BBR-1 on the truck of which is a real jigsaw puzzle of parts, so I'm used to complicated stuff. This looked like something that I plugged the hole in my firewall with(even though it's extremely important). Well in case anyone wants it for the septillionth time it is:

    BK6601000 (not a NAPA number, its a Balkamp number)

    The NAPA numbers for the heating and cooling parts are Balkamp numbers it seems, as I used a couple other Balkamp numbers to get 12V motors and a squirrel cage for the same vehicle(Two 67 Mustang motors and cage, of which I know will need some adapting to the housing).


    1964 Studebaker Commander R2 clone
    1963 Studebaker Daytona Hardtop with no engine or transmission
    1950 Studebaker 2R5 w/170 six cylinder and 3spd OD
    1955 Studebaker Commander Hardtop w/289 and 3spd OD and Megasquirt port fuel injection(among other things)
