Heater Control Valve Options? 140-160

Guys;

If the HCV is "essentially new", I expect sealing and mechanism to work well (presuming it is well lubricated!)...but if it doesn't shut off fully, or works itself open, I expect it is an Bowden (control) cable issue...after lubing cable to assure there is no lost motion, check and adjust cable ends so there is no preload encouraging the control lever to spring back...sheath-clamp may also be slipping and need to be modified with barbs to assure holding sheath securely...
