Re: Heater Hose modification??
I removed that valve long ago. I have never known as samurai to be cold. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I replaced that valve with a flush valve. I can open up the coolant system there and connect a hose to flush from that end of the system as well as from the radiator.
Even in the dead of winter, as long as I have anti-freeze in the radiator, it stays warm.
Now, if yer heater core is plugged from rust or what have you, then there could be a prob. You can bu-pass your ehater core altogether and see if there is any noticable difference before yanking the core out for inspection. The heater core feeds back into the water inlet hose right next to where the manifold to heater hose exits the manifold.
