On my own TR6, I've found that if the heater control valve is not closed ALL
the way, I get the same problem. If the valve is the least bit open my left
foot cooks! If the control cable is not adjusted just right, the valve will
not close completely unless you go under the hood a turn it that last little
bit by hand.
