Brilliant thanks...Been after one for a while ...Just ordered one from Amazon
 
Whats the best way of fitting the cable at the heater valve end on these ?


How did you get Amazon to do this. They don't appear to ship to the UK.

We as TCOC bought 10 of these Valves direct form Everco in the States when they arrived in Ireland we divided the total cost by 10 so we all got a Valve for €24 a pop,Happy Days.

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.
