87 bounder heater control valve

my heater control valve (located under the hood) on my bounder with a 454 ci is leaking. have tried to find one (on e-bay, mill supply, and elsewhere) with no luck. the valve is cable controlled and has 0319727 stamped into it.

Has anyone needed one and found a replacement?

We are going to need a picture. There all kinds of coolant valves. Here is one off of a Monaco with the NAPA replacement. They are now made out of plastic but they work just as well. The one in my Holiday Rambler is similar but is shaped more like and H and has two lines. Hope this helps.

Most GM chassis the valve is made by Evans.

here are some pics of the valve (with and without the cable plate attached) plus a pic of the control box. Evans supplied the later Fleetwoods, but not in 87.

hopefully someone can help me identify the brand and where i might find a new valve.

I bet one of these will work once you replace the vacuum operator with your mechanical assembly.

Thanks for posting the ebay link Dave, I found the "H" type valve that fits my Holiday Rambler there. I ordered it and it comes with free shipping. I had cleaned up my old one and made it usable, but it still works extremely stiff. This will be a big help. I hope gman69 finds one to fit his although I didn't see one like his. I wonder how hard it would be to convert the manual slider for a vacuum operated one? I might look into that.

yep found the valve on e-bay. it had a vacuum solenoid, which i removed and used the actual valve on my cable assy. works like a top.
