Hi Tim,

I just tried Amazon and they will NOT deliver to the UK.

 

Could you get me one whilst on your holiday if it is not too much trouble.

 

See PM

I've just bought 2 off from the Amazon UK site and they have confirmed shipped to UK with a tracking No. I've done it before and it's easy..

Same here - I log in to the .com site no problem and it says they do delivery to uk c/w customs charges. But in the checkout when I select my address it claims there's an error. Help says it might be one of several things including no delivery to your country. Can I phone someone to ask for help? 'Course not, it's a bloody computer. Grrrr!

 

Cheers, Richard

Get an in line version off ebay - search on 5/8 heater valve Taxi and there it is. £14.50 delivered. Then you just need an adaptor for the head and a 90 degree pipe. Doddle. Bend the cable or Revington TR have a neat connector block for a fiver.

Nothing fancy needed to make your own,large type Electrical Connector take out one of the Screws and use as Pilot Hole drill out to 4.5mm strip off plastic for a neater look place down onto Everco Shaft and your Heater Cable is them held with the other Screw,Simples.

Wow that's so ingeniously simple, thanks for that, I shall go and make one forthwith!

 

I love this forum and all the knowledge the members have and freely share :)

That looks like it. Perhaps double check with them before ordering. They sell the complete kit but it's touching £100. Let me know if you are struggling and I'll dig out the invoice/part number.

 

Thanks,

FYI I used to find the everco valve for around $22 but the lowest price that I can find today is $29 from Rock Auto. Still a good deal for a fit and forget heater valve. I have never understood why the UK TR parts suppliers have not stocked them, Perhaps insufficient volume, margin or no viable supplier.

Sounds like a good business opportunity for someone in the UK then. :)

I used to get Stan to send me a bunch of them at a time but when the Dollar rate went down it was making them too expensive with shipping and tax.

Quite right, the exchange rate doesn’t help at all

Hi,

I ditched the heater valve over twenty years ago. No regrets.

The car is toasty in the winter and roofs down in the summer. The one functioning lever is always on defrost.

If i was wanting to control flow thru the heater I would fit a 12V solenoid.

 

Just my opinion. For my daily.

 

Cheers,

Iain.
