    Re: overdrive problem

    BTW the O/D valve lever doesn't move very much normally. If disturbed / undone the lever needs resetting. IIRC by using a dowel...

    Re: pinto heater

    Thats a useful get you home fix if the heater matrix ever leaks. However as Tony says, why not fit a simple stop valve? Try Car Builder Solutions as a first port of call. Peter.
