Re: 52 v8 flathead heater

Your rubbing it in Merc! Ouch! Rain and cold here! I believe it is normally open for safety reasons. If a part of the system fails, the heater would still function to protect the passengers? If the...

Re: 52 v8 flathead heater

Hi Merc
I thought the valve was normally open? How strong should the engine vacuum be.? It doesn't seem to be strong enough to operate the diaphragm. When I run water thru the valve it flows...

Re: 52 v8 flathead heater

I bypassed the heater control valve to isolate it from the circulating system. I did this by coupling the two hoses that go to the valve. I figure this will complete the cycle. However, even though...
