Hi all, I have an older Aussie assembled car here in the UK, and need a new cable operated heater valve. Exact replacements from Oz are stupidly expensive, but I have found this listing for a TR4 TR5 TR6 Water Heater Valve on ebay that looks like it might work:



Does anyone know what the thread diameter/pitch is on this?

See Facebook page, "Triumph Pi Enthusiasts Group" Andy Thompson's latest post, where he says "Useful information: New Mk4 spitfire heater valve can be cannibalised to repair Mk1 2000/2.5 heater valve , casting and internals are the same. "

Thanks for the replies guys - I eventually found a supplier who was very helpful and posted the exact one I needed. I will install it this week.
