I just came back from Pep Boys and had a look at the heater control valve
(#74671). It's *mostly* metal, but the valve and body are (black)
plastic--overall body is same diameter as the heater hose i.d. One hose
connection is metal and the other is part of the plastic body. Is this the
design considered to be superior to the OEM part (or just cheaper)? BTW it
sells for $23.99.
