Welcome to our resource for MG Car Information.
MG Midget and Sprite Technical - 1500 heater valve
|Simple question, looking from the front of the car what is the open position? Lever righ or lever left?|
|Sorry I don't know the answer, I'll see if I can find it|
But this is just the type of thing that the owners Handbook is very useful for - (Ref: 0058) http://www.mgocshop.co.uk/catalog/Online_Catalogue_Handbooks_5.html
plus the Handbook covers all else you need to know about your car
|sorry Les I can't find anything, so you'll have to wait for 1500 owner to reply|
get that Handbook though as it gives you such much information about your car, all owners and potential owners should have a copy
|The valve is opened by moving the lever towards the battery|
|Unless it was fixed on incorrectly by some idiot previous owner - in which case - keep on trying and see!|
Was there a particular reason you were asking the question though?
Could n't remember which way was on and I'd just put a complete set of hoses on and part filled with water & anti-freeze. Did n't want to take a hose of to check.
Start up tommorrow after 20 (cough) years!
Heat is on when the lever is up or toward the battery and off when toward the fender.
I made a cable operated remote control for mine. Details are on page 7 of a recent club newsletter. Well worth the effort and should have come this way from the factory.
|Easy - just flip the lever toward the heater for heat. |
|Very nice idea Lee! I might have to consider doing that.|
|Another method to secure the cable to the lever may be to use a gizmo that secures either the choke or throttle cable to the levers on the carb.|
ACC5062 TRUNNION, accelerator cable
AUE34 TRUNNION (choke cable)
