Default Ranco heater valve rebuild

Anyone had their heater valves rebuilt recently ?
Can you recommend a vendor ?
Thank you for your input.

Typically what fails is the rubber "stopper" that is available from NAPA and you can repair it yourself pretty easily. Of course valves come in many different configurations so yours may be more difficult than the ones I've seen. I think McVey's does rebuilding. Tom

I have no personal recommendation, but a few MoPar websites I visit have on their vendor list (while not necessarily endorsing) these two sources (along with NAPA route Tom mentioned above):
