a sad day today. The Everco valve arrived from the US (well done RockAuto). But it means the end to my homemade valve.
Gone is the copper piping and the washing machine service valve.
I was amazed at what I had to remove.
Firstly remove the old valve
Remove rear outboard head nut and stud
Fit the elbow
Fit the valve.
Adjust the heater valve cable. My cable is on the right hand side of the H frame as per the TR6.
A new cable would have to be cut back to length. Mine need a little adjustment.
I used the 'ring' cable terminal to fit over the valve operating pin. Note - I have change it for Niall's chocolate block terminal.
I have just realised that I'm sure it should be soldered to the solid wire (oops)
Fit the rubber heater pipe.
I have a new green pipe but decided to use some very fancy black Concorde piping (I wonder where that came from).
Operating is as smooth as the knob will allow - with its ball/detent positioning.
