Body removal and refitting


Recommended Posts

Hi, when lifting the body off my 69 Elan S4 the heater valve had to be removed to clear the body during the lift. However the heater valve could not be unscrewed because it hit the fibreglass inner wing. No problem as the valve was buggered I simply cut off the heater hose fitting and unscrewed it.  Refitting the new one will be an issue though.  Can I swap over the heater valve and the temperature probe?  Has anyone else had this problem?

Yes no reason they cant be swapped over as they are both 1/2” BSPT I believe. But please check elsewhere to corroborate.

thanks
