I can turn the heater off!

No more boiling over when the weather gets hot.

While I was at Juno last weekend, we made the biggest improvement to driver comfort that I have yet experienced with my car. We were talking about how hot it gets inside my car, even with the heater valve closed. Neither Gary nor Steve thought this sounded right. Investigation quickly showed that even with the cable pushed right in under the dash, the valve was not closing properly. A quick twiddle of the screwdriver allowed me to pull the cable a little further through the clamp on the valve end. Problem solved. The drive home, and all the drives since, have been much cooler.
