Seconded. Not sure, but there may be an O-ring or seal that could be replaced.
FWIW, my BJ8 was built in Nov. '66 has 205K miles, and the valve still works (but it's been a bit more recalcitrant lately). I had it out years ago when a hose started leaking and, IIRC, I shot some oil on it and put it back in.

With the rebuilt engine I am installing a rebuilt Toyota five speed gearbox and have already rebuilt the rear end with an original 3:54 ring and pinion. The original S/N transmission will live on my shelf with my spare. I am trying really hard to stop taking things apart but today I pulled my heater assembly out to replace the hoses and clean and paint the housing. Question, should I keep my forty year old heater valve or replace it with new replacement. Are there good replacements available or just China junk? With the engine, gearbox and center console out access will never be better then now.
