Am I right? > Thanks, > Phil Brown Hi Phil, It has been quite a while but I have replaced three heater valves on pre 1987 900s, one of which (1985) is still in the family. The original valves looked like they belong in a cornet. They are brass and when the seals go you cannot turn off the heat. The replacement plastic valves look like something made by Mattel but they seem to last forever. I became adept at replacing them without removing anything else by using a single hand run up along the clutch or brake pedel opening. I seem to remember that two Allen screws hold the thing on and that I had to saw a standard Allen key in half so that it would work in the tight space. Good luck, R. Frist 900T 5 sp.
