Here, again-

We go to the Vizard "bible" for who else
(besides David Anton) knows these engines as well.

The cooling system on the A Series is marginal to begin with, especially
the early downflow systems. So, anything which aids cooling in any
respect is
wanted and warranted. 

Keeping the heater tap open means more
water in the cooling system overall.

Therefore, in keeping with the above statement (which is known to be
keeping the heater tap open can only be
a good thing. And, furthermore...

This open heater tap can only improve
circulation at the rear of the block (where
this tap lives) which also happens to
be the home of cylinder #4. Improved water circulation around a hot
cylinder can
only be a good thing.

So, there you have it. Keeping the tap open can only have beneficial
(to the engine) except to the occupants
in the cockpit, who are gonna get a little

So, close the "floor vents" and force the
hot air through the defrosting ducts or,
close the floor vent on the driver's side
and keep the one open on the pax side
should you be going solo.....

Assuming that engine life is the priority! :)
