On my 56 3200 235, I took an idea from the forum and installed an in line valve that I got at Advanved Auto. They had a black plastic unit that had a control mounted on the one side. If you wanted to reverse the valve for the flow it was possible to relocated the cable mount unit on the other side of the valve. I mouned it under the battery box and attached it to the temp arm on the deluxe heater control in my truck. I have a standard heater. I also connected the heat/defrost arm to the flip arm on the front of the heater box. Not enough throw but set for full defrost at defrost setting on control and mix of heat and defrost on full heat. Local TV tech rebuilt the fan switch and I use it to control the blower. Almost like real! The guys here think its factory. Just using here in the summer and the defrost for early morings or evening is most important.

I still haven't gotten the part to shut off the heat, but I did take my first First Place this weekend. It was the 1950-54 division (all makes and models) and I just added a Photobucket link to my profile. I'm a happy man.

Hey Willy, great lookin' truck!! Was wondering what size and brand of tires you put on it?

BTW, If you have a Tractor Supply store nearby they have exactly the valve you're looking for. All brass.

Old air sells two cutoffs I would suggest you use. One is a manual cutoff to go on one of your hoses, the other is a cable operated valve that will adjust the hot water flow to your heater. That way you can adjust the heat in the cab on a not-so-cold day.

I'm going to have to check that out for you in the morning. I honestly don't remember. I did get them at Coker Tire in Chattanooga which isn't that far from me. I also got the rims there. I'll let you know what size they are.

Spot, the tires are P215/75R15 Coker 2 1/2" WW, the rims are 15X7 Smoothies both are from Coker Tire in Chattanooga, TN (423) 265-6368.

By the way, as you suggested I stopped by Tractor Supply today and found the brass ball valve. Thanks!

I installed the ball valve today. Let her run about 20 minutes or so and no leaks. Life is good and much cooler. Thanks to all who offered suggestions. Learned a lot as usual.
