Or operate it by hand when required and not bother with the cable.

You could also look at full bore 1/4 turn 15 mm plumbing fittings used to isolate bath taps.

there's no way it will be with a bowden cable from inside the cabin ..lol. That nonsense takes me back to old Austin A-Series engines with their heater valve ... damn things would seize up and/or leak in a heartbeat.
I will just use something hand operated - simple, but reliable . ie. no leaks.
I only need to operate it 2 times a year ... really only likely to need the heater for 2mths in 12. Nice to have the option now tho.

Wish it was like that here! Probably the exact reverse in fact. If I had such a valve on mine I'd probably only turn it off in July and August. ;-)

The honda valve must have a way to secure the lever in place. I do not know the inlet/outlet hose diameter.
Back in the day, they where 15-16mm. Now 18-20mm

Think you'd have had penguins as passengers last week - even in Norfolk we got down to -14 - must have been chilly in Braemar at -23! PH sounds quite nice....................I assume Philippines

yes, Philippines - was a nice sunny 28deg today. Changed a front wheel hub/bearing that DHL delivered yesterday. Nice & quiet on the road again now.
The permanently hot heater matrix doesnt seem to be overwhelming the cabin so far. So long as temp. control is down at full cold then the air coming out of vents is exactly that - full cold. Will see what happens when summer arrives proper in the next few weeks and the temps hit the mid 30's, but so far so good.

Well mine is the earlier T31 and my heater is lovely and warm in winter, but on one of those rare occasions in Britain when the temperature went over 30 degrees, the climate control kept things nice and cool.

Eeeeeek but then again you are used to it i eastern Europe - we're not.

We did get mid 30's here where I live 35.2 C but Heathrow got nigh on 37C so not far adrift from PH lol but we simply cannot cope with it and it is so unpredictable!
