Anyone ever fitted a heater tap to the heater hose on a sud/sprint/33?

I'm doing a bit of a revision to my heater box, but would like to stop the water flow to the heater core in order to shut the heat off.

I can get a universal 16mm tap which will fit, but it's just a tap (shuts the flow off completely to the heater) rather than a diverter to bypass the heater core and i'm concerned that the lack of flow around that area will do damage.

Anyone got any experience here?

some 33's came with a tap on the inlet heater line so it could be shut off, Putting one in won't cause any issues as it is just a small water circuit. The engine has its own much larger water circuit that the heater lines just branch off from.

Righto. I'll continue my experiment then :) OOoohh the novel idea of a properly working air/c & heater system in a 33 - Who would have thought! :D

Thought i might as well ask to be sure that I didn't wreck anything (the small heater bypass hose to the overflow tank will get the job done I guess)
