HK-T-G heater tap info?

Model: 
Topic: 
Image: 

I'm assuming that the leaky heater tap (pictured) on my HK is factory.
The ebay item (linked) is titled suggesting it fits HR, HT, HQ, etc.
http://cgi.ebay.com....

It looks quite different to mine. I thought the HQ-J-X-Z taps were different to the HK-T-G type.
Did Holden change to a later/better type of tap after the HK, or is the ebay listed item incorrectly titled.
I've asked the seller, but keen to get some back up info from youse.

Ta muchly!

HK'ing - not keen on a heater cranked on permanently in Summer.

It's not HR, but could probably be doctored up to fit.
This is an HR one:

I know that probably doesn't help you much, but yes the title is a bit wrong I spose..

HT and G didnt have a tap at all. It ran water to the heater element at all times. the heater On/Off was operated only by the paddle in the box to redirect the air flow into the ducting and down into the car.

Correct me if i wrong but thats what i recall. And according to my genuine Holden HK workshop manual the one in the pic is factory fitted. No idea if the one listed on ebay is that same but i would say not. But im sure you could make it work.

hope this helps

Thanks Tim and Brad, for some clarification.

Brad, my heater box has that heater flap to direct (& block) the heated airflow. There's a type of wire link connected to part of the tap that governs the air flow.
The seller hasn't replied as yet, but it sure looks a lot different to my existing one.

If anyone has a functioning, non-leaky heater tap that matches mine, I'm keen to purchase right now!

HK'ing.

made by a member here, not DD. I am still waiting for mine HQ Dave?
Often these leak from between the tap and the heater body, when the fat little O ring deteriorates over time.

Dirty Dave definately has them, they may have been made by the other Dave for him as well??

Anyway, he posted on Fastlane that they're worth $235 including postage - so not cheap - but they are new.

Cheers

Jeremy

hk radiators are different to the ht hg ones.
The ht hg radiators have both pipes the same length. And these radiators will not fit in a hk grey heater box.
The hk inlet pipe on the radiator (for the tap) is smaller and as said above and have an o ring, if you pull the tap off, give it a good clean and put a new ring on you should be good to go.
Other than that your tap had corroded or you have a pin hole in the radiator.
I would be pulling the tap off before getting another as a good hk tap cost a pretty penny.
And Dave from Ballarat is making them.
And summer is on its way, if your radiator is kaput take one hose off where the water pump is and turn the other from the heat box back to it, then wait for a (grey heater box at a swap meet) as ebay prices are unreal.
IMFHO if one bit starts leaking the rest start to follow.
