HR heater electric Tap

HR Holden Special with a fan forced heater has been disconnected. Took the heater out to pressure check and have the following questions.
The engine has a heater tap from head which connects to a cable under the bonnet and circulates the coolant when open etc.
There also seems to be another electronic tap like that in the picture.... what does this do? It's seems to be connected to a wire which goes into heater box??
Cheers

This electric heater tap was leaking slightly. I think I'll solder it up and use the cable tap from engine only. Can't see this being a problem?
Cheers guys

After cutting the thermostat tap off and soldering up the leak the Heater Fan now stays on constantly once the ignition is turned on but also still switches from hight and low with the switch. Any ideas why the fan won't turn off?
Cheers

Finally got the heater fixed and sorted... only to find that the heater cable and original head heater tap are both seized. Any suggestions on ways/ parts people have used to fix? Was thinking of getting a new cable and a simple in line heater tap?
Cheers for everyones help.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to unseize a heater tap?
What is the best thing to soak something like this in?
Cheers
