Dave,

A couple of questions for you......

1) I currently have an NOS heater which is a POS. The wires have fallen out of the heater element. I've repaired it a couple of times but it keeps reoccurring. Is this a common problem with NOS heaters or heaters in general? Which heater do you recommend? I don't need a pressure monitoring heater......all I want is something that will use the existing wiring from my NOS heater.....and I don't have a problem getting another NOS heater if you say what I experienced is uncommon. As soon as you give me a recommendation I'll order it from your site.

2) Bottle openers - I will be ordering one in the next few weeks. Which one do you recommend? I will be using it with a 15 lb NOS bottle and my 10 lb spare NOS bottle. Also, do these close the bottle as well?

3) GTO switch plate - do they come with switches or can you include the proper switches?

Thanks!
Steve

And if anyone else has experience with these products.......please feel free to chime in as well.

You can replace the heater element only if you want to go that route, as we have not seen your problem very often. If you wanted to upgrade to the 860 heated bracket you can order it without the pressure monitor.

We would reccomend either the NX or Zex opener depending on the exact valve your bottles have.

The switch panels come with switches

Thanks for the reply Ray. I think I would just assume get a whole new warmer instead of messing with the element. So do I take it correctly you're then advising me just to get another NOS warmer?

As far as the opener, I think both bottles have the NOS high flow valve, but with slightly different handles. Can you tell from this picture?



Great answer on the switches too! If I can get a definite answer on the opener I think I'll just order everything today....:D

Thanks,
Steve

Yes. I would just go back with the NOS warmer for the ease of install.
I am running the 860 in my car and love the fact it gives a much cleaner install.

For that valve you would have to go one of the NOS openers
