Bill,The radiator wasn't getting hot, so being an impatient kind of chap, I went ahead and got a thermostat valve and hoped you would say something to prove me right! What a pig the snap-ring is - almost made me think a Rover Engineer thought up the design! - and it wasn't helped by whoever fitted it last time installing the snap-ring such that you couldn't see the plier holes because of the valve!Anyway, valve changed, system bled, leaks fixed (ahem), air turned blue, and it works as advertised!Cheers
