Which direction is "no heat"? Bottom of the lever forward or toward the motor?

Pretty sure it is the forward location of the valve access "hole" in the cabinet, pushing it back lets the flow through. I have to dig in my back seat box later today, my PO wrote the directions on the top of the cover... If I find I have mislead you, I will edit this.

Bobbyblack may be correct but my memory says the opposite.

Thanks for checking. I'd do the obvious thing, run the engine, turn on the blower, and be enlightened. At the moment, our Westy's grounded while I do some "getting ready for the next road trip" projects.

I'm no help since I switched over to the GoWesty Valve version and never turn off the Rear Heater Core coolant flow. I could, probably should,,,, but I don't..... Razz Razz Wink Wink
