Replacement Heater Valves In the middle of Summer?

Author: CFF

I’ve received quite a few requests lately for replacement heater valves. You may probably be aware that Jensen Cars has not been able to supply the original part for more than a few years. So what to do? After quite some searching, I’ve come up with a valve that has been used successfully on a couple of cars. It is not an exact replacement but it is almost a bolt-on replacement.

The valve that I eventually found was manufactured by : EVERCO #H1989. It was used on the ‘65-68 Ford with a/c, the ’66 Lincoln, the ‘65-70 Pontiac full size, and the ‘69-72 Pontiac Le Mans. With such an application list as this it should be available for a very long time.

When using this as a replacement, you lose the capillary tube (part of the climate control system - never worked anyway!) You will also lose a mounting bracket, the only complaint and we really hate to see heater valves flopping around, especially in the area of the starter solenoid.
