Jairus, I hope all is well, I haven't checked your thread in a while. Good luck on your heater. Mine has the deluxe heater already. I have fought with that stupid heater core/control valve set up for almost as long as I have had the car. It is basically a cable controlled vacuum operated valve regulating vacuum pressure that regulates flow through the heater core. After going through 2 water control valves, I found a "dummy" valve that is marketed for a 58-60 Thunderbird. 58-60 Thunderbird use the same heater core as 57/58 full size Fords. It is basically a tube with a whole in it roughly the same shape as the original valve. Flow is then regulated by a cable operated valve. http://www.macsautoparts.com/ford_t...ater-hot-water-control-valve-kit-1958-60.html This worked great for me for about a year, until my remanufactured heater core started leaking.
