Turn off the heat!

I'd like to shut off the water to the heater in the summer. The heater hoses are going in to the original heater on my '54 Chevy 3100. I know it's not hard, but, knowing just what to buy will make it that much easier. Thanks for your help.

Your local hardware might have what you need, too. Mine did. There is a photo showing valve I used on my photobucket link. Good luck!

You need one of these. Mount it up by the thermostat housing.

If you are not that concerned about originality, a 3/8 inch ball valve from hardware store, Home Depot, etc, works great. It is similar to what 40casey used.

Or take off the lines from the water pump , replace the hose connectors on the water pump with pipe plugs (3/8), and slip the hoses back over the pipe plugs. You can even put the hose clamps on if you want to.

This gives the originality "looks" and cuts off the hot water to the heater.

Put your hose connectors back on next fall for heat

Google Cooling Depot. I used their valve # 111 746 28V that is cable controlled. You can manually control it under the hood or do what I did was to hook up a cable and control it from inside the cab.
