Installing Evans Heat valve

I just ordered a new Evans heat/coolant control valve. Any tips on the install? Or do I just need to take off the hose clamps and plug and then put hoses back on, tighten hose clamps and plug it in? Do I need to plug/stop up hoses or will I lose coolant while installing?
Thanks ...................

It's basically just a swap, hose clamps and such. Whether you lose coolant or not depends on the orientation of the hoses in your particular rig, but my guess would be "yes'.

If your hoses are as pictured as you disconnect them tie them up to retain fluid.



The left hand side will be where you may have to work faster.
The valve is up high should not lose much fluid from heater core.

Use a pair of vice grips and crimp the hose carefully while you are working.
