Heater Hoses and Tap
« on: March 28, 2019, 08:24:07 AM »
Hi all I have been look at pluming up the heater as one of my next jobs , I need to buy a tap and cable ,would the ones that bolt onto the back of the head be the go ? would you need a tap in a moke just let the coolant circulate and turn the fan on when you get cold or would it get to hot at your feet on a warm day ?

I removed the tap on the head as after the third one leaking I gave up on them and just fitted a elbow, so coolant flows the whole time. You don't feel any more heat until you turn the fan on. I have plumbed the heater hose through my heated inlet manifold to stop the carby freezing up.

Hi,
Just like Pete, I also removed the tap and fitted the elbow.
If I want heat, I just turn on the fan.
