Se5 connection heater valve to inlet manifold

Post by Jon69 » Fri May 10, 2019 9:44 am

No luck in wanted section, so can anyone help with the adapter pipe and nut that connects the heater valve to inlet manifold, or even an inlet manifold with the connection complete. Must be Se5 figment.
Having found a correct heater valve, now need parts to connect to inlet manifold.
The original manifold had a wrong valve fitted to a connector which was also wrong and would never have worked.

i tried the the Taxi valve that is well published, but did not operate well with the rotary dials, so sourced the real thing..........

Thanks for your replies.
1969SE5, what unions/connectors did you find to do the job?
