Maybe you guys can steer me in the right direction. On the 82 there is what seems to be a valve with two heater hoses attached. There is a bracket that mounts to the blower housing (Right side near firewall)which holds the unit in place (at least that what it looks like) I can not find this bracket or entire unit in any catalogs. I'm thinking boneyard but there hard to come by down here. Any and all suggestions welcome.
Thanks,

Carlo

I'm not sure without looking at mine, Carlo, but these guys came through on my seat belt warning buzzer module:

One of the larger Vette boneyards.

Carlo,

I just had some good luck with JUST CORVETTES. They are a Corvette only salvage yard in the Mid West. 1-800-886-8388, Ask for Scott. Good luck.

Carlo, IF your original bracket is ok it can be removed from the old heater control valve and attached to a new valve. To find the new valve you have to find a friendly auto parts man that will look it up in a book with pictures(the old way instead of computers). Make sure it is correct (normally open or normally closed) depending on the vacumm source.

This is what I had to do to my 82.

Thanks Tcolyer,
The valve is fine. What I need is the bracket. Hopefully the boneyard will have one.

The stock heater valve (it's mounted on the heater box) hsa the bracket (triangular part) fixed to it. If the bracket is damaged you'll need a new valve.
