EA Heating problem

Hey guyz.. just a quick question regarding the heater on my ea cfi.
Most likely a thermostat problem but i will ask in case. Got no heating inside the cabin and the engine is running VERY cold. Ive checked heater valve and heater cable.. sound like a faulty thermostat?

Cheers

I checked the thermostat and it was missing the lower half.. no idea why but i threw in a new one. Still no heat inside the cabin... is there a heater flap inside the dash???

Feel the heater hoses going into the firewall...both top and bottom one should both be as warm as the radiator hoses. Could have a blocked heater core issue...is the heater tap new and connected correctly? From memory a green vaccum line should be going into it...have an assistant operate the heater control and watch the tap and see if the arm moves as the temp. is increased..

I think EA's have a flap in the dash...not sure as i havent owned one before..

Hope this Helps

hey mate.. yeah, checked the hoses and tap.. arm opens and closes with the heater control... i know of 1 flap in the dash that is controled by the cable from the heater controls.. if this is the only 1 then i must have a blocked heater core..
