Didn't someone recently mention that these rubber diaphragms are identical to a Triumph TR3/4 or MGB part???

Thanks Colin...is the one from classic alfa an exact duplicate of original or a replacement from another car? IAP's is a from some other car, but fits and feels a little flimsy...compared to the original the diaphram is thinner rubber.

I couldn't tell you for sure. To be certain, you'd best email them to ask.

They remanufacture so many other parts, and in my experience are particularly fussy about quality, so I would expect it's probably a copy of an original.

All I know is that it fits, so my heater is going back into the car this week - the second week of Spring :eek:

I have previously purchased one of these seals from a local supplier here in Oz two years back. I paid a whopping AUD40.00 for it and it didn't last 12 months. The rubber perished and it leaked fluid onto my new carpets. Grrr! :mad:

Compare to the last one I had, I can tell this one is better quality just by the look and feel of it.
To preserve my carpets I pressure tested it by clamping my garden hose on to the heater and crimping the outlet hose on the other side. I opened and closed the valve a few times, left it for an hour or so... no leaks yet. :)
