Kudos to Scott Mockry for getting the heater control valve, hose, clamps,
Pentosin to me in a very speedy manor. The temps yesterday soared into the
30's, so I spent a few hours getting the car back on the road.
Compared to the new one:
Installed everything (the hose clamp clamping the valve to the heater hose was
a major, major PITA. Rusted solid.), installed a new MFTS switch, flushed the
system, and refilled with fresh coolant.
Thanks for everyone help/advice.
