I've been striking out. Where can I find a water valve for a 1971 B body with Strato-Vent? I don't mind modifyling a similar valve if necessary, but sure would like a correct one.

so that is interesting.
I found one listed already sold.
https://www.forbbodiesonly.com/moparforum/threads/nos-1971-73-b-body-strato-vent-water-valve.166403/

but looking up that part number
there are 2 modern ones. half plastic.
ford valve


all plastic
dodge valve

That appear to be the same design.

and then this one that says it is for that car, but completly different

Do you have your old correct one?

There’s a few other brand cars that have the same exact valve but use a different bracket. It may be cheaper to find and all brass NOS version for another car and modify your OE bracket to work. I’ve seen it done with riveting the bracket to the vacuum diaphragm. The valve section is just held on by two screws, IIRC

Like 67-69 Camaro? This was talked about years ago here… use both Moparts search functions

Thanks for the help everyone. Yes, I have my original valve but it is seized inside.
I have tried searching on here, but no success.
If I can modify another version and transfer my bracket, that is fine.
I just need a functioning valve, and preferably a correct appearance

That looks like it could be converted. Anyone know what application it is?

Thank you for the help!

That’s the one I think I found that was used for the resto of a 71 Charger strato vent car.

I think 67 to 69 Camero’s. Can’t remember if all or one particular year.

Current offerings may have been updated too. So look on eBay for old NOS boxes.
