That is a 199 degree valve & the one Source sells -- If the "57" in that number was a "58" then the temp would be a 205 degrees valve -- A "56" then it would be a 194 degrees valve -- Bill Willard

I’m currently in the cold Quartzite area injoying the not so warm weather so I don’t have the whitehouse invoice with me. I’m pretty sure my valve is a 553109857210 valve. As I remember the valves listed by whitehouse the last 3 numbers were for the temperature for instance 55310/9857/190, 55310/9857/200, 55310/9857/210 I thought possibly the reason some folks were reading lower temperatures was because they had a restrictor office in the hydrolic line to keep the fan moving air at all times I don’t think the 210 temperature will hurt but I would prefer to see it at 200 degrees cruising.

Had a previous coach done at Source where they put in the restrictor. After removing it there was no fan speed at startup. Before with it in place I was getting a med-low speed at startup. Never received any CAC warnings, and would wait until it got up to operating temp before turning on the A/C. This helped greatly in getting to operating temp a lot quicker, especially in the winter months. If you go back to Dons picture you can see the in-line restrictor.

I installed the wax valve that is set to be wide open at 199 degrees -- I installed different size orifices, restrictors, till I got the fan speed to about 650rpm`s at cold idle -- I did this so I wouldn`t screw up my air conditioner -- I have no problem getting up to operating temp -- Bill Willard

When I had the new hoses made up I installed a high pressure rated Parker 1/8” valve in one hose line so I can choose any fan speed but I leave it open . I put 2 fans in front of the a/c condenser tied to the compressor clutch that will hopefully be enough for the a/c and hopefully not restrict air to the radiator. Haven’t had a chance to run the a/c yet as it is too cold outside and needed to replace the a/c compressor when it was warm due to a leaky seal.

Wax valve

I purchased the source engineerng wax valve and had colton truck in socal install it. What a difference it made. It runs on hi at 194 degrees when pulling grades. Runs slow when not needed. My rig used to heat up to 210 on grades and seemed to lose power. Very pleased with fix.
