Hi All. I'm in the process (thinking about) of redoing my heater in the 46. I've found a 12 motor that should work and since I will have the heater out of the car I will replace the heater hoses, also. I'm not sure how the original plumbing was but my car has shut off valve in each of the hoses. NOT car valves, but regular valves like you would put on your house water pipes. I think that originally the water just continuously ran thru the heater core summer and winter. I would like to have a shut-off valve that I could open and close from inside the car. I was thinking of using the throttle or choke cable as the actuating mechanism. Has any one of you ever done this before and what type/model valve did you use?
