I didn't even bother with the heater control valve on my 77. I believe they alway let some water through so in the summer you get heat. I installed a shut off valve in the heater hose in the engine compartment & turn it off in the summer. Made a huge difference. Just remember to turn it on every month or so to circulate the water.
