Kevin, I tested it installed on the core only flowing one way. I will test it for flow the other way.

Bingo...... I reversed the flow putting the water to the valve first and it leaked like crazy. So now I have a choice to make. Send the valve off to be rebuilt by a professional or put in the readily available, much cheaper, standard heater core that doesn’t have a control valve in it.

Thanks to all those that helped.

Socket Breaker
back when I first got my '65, a previous owner had a heater valve installed off a pipe coming off the engine to the heater core, looked just like a hot water heater valve from the hardware store, push/pull cable setup. It eventually broke so I took it off, but it worked great for keeping it 'not too hot' .

Just an idea.

good luck,

old trucks are fun.

I think that will be the plan moving forward. I can get a cable operated heater control valve at any of the FLAPS. Truck is by no stretch of the imagination stock, so original is not necessary. Thanks
