I would suspect the heater valve.  If you still have the old valve, mount it 
in place (you don't have to connect the hoses for this test) and see if it 
opens and closes fully.  If it works, the new valve is not right, send it 
back.  You addressed the loose/slipping cable, which would have been my first 

Or you could just buy a Midget and be done with it!  Open the bonnet and work 
the valve directly.  The heater in the Midget you sold me works fine!  (And 
I'm still very happy with the car!)
