Heating and Ventilation
|From the Jensen FF Mk1 sales literature: “Heating. Fresh air 41/2 Kw unit incorporating windscreen demister/defroster and two speed booster fan. High level air intake. Individual outlets to front and rear footwells. Ventilation. Individually controlled fresh air outlets at face level and in front wells delivering ambient temperature air. Booster fan in face level system. Twin electric demister fans for rear window.
Two photographs of the new “ranco valve that I bought from Cropredy Bridge Garage. Comparing it to the old valve it is very similar except that there is no mounting braket for the operating cable. I asked the List about my leaking heater valve(“Ranco valve”):
The responses were:
2.I find this on the Web http://HeaterControlValve.com/page6.html
3.http://www.heatercontrolvalve.com/ this place rebuilds the Ranco’s, but are somewhat expensive. They don’t do the vacuum actuated Interceptor III valves. I inquired a year ago or so.
4. Bremar the thermocouple goes through the bulkhead and the turns through 90 degrees( if I remember right) so you can’t “yank” it out. You need to access it from within the engine compartment not the interior. Jensen never did consider the problems of repairing anything. Wait until you do a major refit and fit a valve off another car?
