Got mine in today. I need to order a new temp control cable though. Someone chopped the old one off short.

When it is all done, I'll take pics.

Re: Heater control valve... again

Digging this old thread up.....

I just got my heater valve in the mail today. It looks great. Would be great-er if the hose fittings had barbs built into them - but it probably does not matter.

I am gathering my bits together to install this and I see that I am missing everything that goes on the end of the adjustment cable. I have the cable - but not the flat metal fitting that clips the cable into the heater valve assembly and I do not have the bits on the end of the wire that thread through the heater valve eyelet.

I can probably fabricate up these parts (or find something at the local hardware store that is close enough). The flat metal bit has me stumped though. Does anything have a photo of the full part? I could not find a diagram in my parts manual. I can't figure out its shape and how it clips into the heater valve assembly.

Thanks!

Found some leads on parts, page 1J 10 of the Series 3 Optional Parts Catalogue lists the parts and numbers, but helpfully has no helpful illustration like every other listing in there!

Bracket heater valve is ERC3484

Cable assembly, water valve operation RH Stg , 347941

Clip heater control cable CRC 1250

Much of it sounds like standard series3 heater kit.

No luck so far sourcing parts listed above on websites, have gone for a defender cable and some fabricating, unless someone can come up golden with a source on here

David,

I have a Bracket and think a clip at work.

Will have a look today when I am in.

If you drop me a email info@designdevelopmenteng.co.uk

Could also make a batch as there is a few people missing this part.

I’ve just fitted one of these control valves.i can’t seem to get the heater to run cool.probably something I’ve done wrong . Is the heat supposed to be off when the lever is closed to the body of the valve?
