Ok, so Herb's heater valve showed up. shipped from Japan so it took a while.

Here is a side by side comparison. I was looking for the tubing to be the same with a mounting solution I could live with.

Looks like the tabs are not oriented correctly to use the original bracket to mount up

So I cut off the bracket and used some machine screws to attach the valve to the original mechanism

Pressure tested and repair confirmed!

 

Time to call Herb and set up an install time

Got Herb's heater up and running today. Worked out just fine.

 

I have a request for the community here. His wipers stopped working due to a worn out motor linkage pivot. Anyone have one they can part with? Here is a picture of what I am looking for

Amazing fix on the heater valve! Now if only we could find a similar valve for the 510.. anyone?

Taking some copper pipe to Al today so his radiator guy can fix my cracked pipe, I'll disassemble the valve itself and replace the o-rings, I'll make a thread when i get it back next weekend to explain and post oics of what he did, i don't think there's a worse one than mine and he said he can fix it, :thumbup:
