Heater tap '67

Post by ChrisM »

Looking for a heater tap for my '67 1275.

New part I purchased apart from no looking even close to original is leaking coolant everywhere. I think I need the angled one?

Can anyone help or point me in the right direction of a new one?

Cheers Chris.

Your best option is an original or the later one from Minispares.

All the repro ones suffer from the same issue. The top pops off as soon as the car is up to temp. None of the Repro ones are imune.

Not perfect, but at least it holds water.

Other than that, it's finding someone who will sell you a good original.
