deleting heater bypass valve

Hi,

Is it possible to completely remove the heater bypass valve on my '92 Camaro RS? And how would I go about doing it.

The original one stated leaking so I replaced it and a year later the replacement part has started to leak.

Shipping parts over from the States isn't cheap, so if I don't need one I'd rather do without.

Thanks

Andy

Below is what your car should look like, with the bypass hose in line.

Since it's only job is to redirect heated water out of the cab, you just need to make it look like the other picture without the bypass valve.

Cut the hardline just below the "T" in the return line and lengthen the line going to the water pump...remove bypass and lengthen hose to the intake manifold.
