  • Cool/Heat: Leaking heater control valve '61 Lark

    Hi, guys:

    Does anyone know where I can get a new heater control valve, or a kit to repair my original? The car is a 1961 Lark VI. I've checked several Studebaker vendors, and even Googled it, and it's possible to obtain kits and valves for '59-'60 as well as '62-'66 Larks. As a '61 owner, I appear to be in a spot.

    If the valve can't be directly replaced or fixed, will a universal, cable-operated heater control valve work? I've noticed none of the aftermarket universals have the steel "flying saucer" shaped housing that mine has.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks in advance,

    Check with Dennis DuPont in Derry, NH. He may have an NOS one.
