     Old timers on this network may remember the discussions about heater 
     valves over the winter.  I had found mine to be leaky (as in not 
     shutting off, not dripping on the ground), and replaced it with the 
     Tiger Technologies part.
     Well, heading for British Car Day this weekend, I got to do my first 
     hot weather drive with the valve in place, and it made a noticeable 
     difference.  I could open the heater and get more relatively cool air 
     on my toes.  It ain't AC, but it's better.
     So, along with air leaks (see my comment a week or so back), check for 
     leaky heater valves.  
     I haven't had a shot at the "lifted rear of the hood" test yet, to see 
     if this will help cool things off, but I hope to get it in within a 
     couple weeks.
