It will work for a while and then freeze again. It’s the nature of that valve.

After soaking in PB Blaster for over two weeks I finally got the propane torch out and was able to heat it up enough and hit it with a dead blow hammer to drive the bastard apart. Now to use toothpaste to clean up the mating surfaces and see if the valve will work? I will be home memorial day weekend and intend to back flush the cooling system and install my aluminum Rad and electric fan and thermostatically controlled switch.
