I'm glad I didn't have to resort to a faucet! I did find a servo for $32 that is now installed and not leaking, at least for now!! Thanks so much for your help!!

There are reports of some people that have figured out the coolant flow, and replaced the servo unit with some valves and plumbing fixtures from the hardware store. This is a process born of desperation and temporary lack of funds. It may be inexpensive and effective, but it does add a new dimension to the term "Manual Controls."

It may serve your purpose until such time as you can get it Right.

Best wishes,

Remember: It's not just a car. It's an Adventure.
