Unfortunately heater valves for 81 brats are unique according to the parts book.

On the bright side, it's still holding up. Wish I could say the same for the air conditioning compressor I had put in at the same time :-)

I see your plastic slider tab is broken and has been repaired. That is very important if you plan to operate it from the dash.
Also, you can hook hoses directly to the core and add a universal valve in the engine compartment. You can then have full heat all the time and turn it off in the summer! Turn it half way on for warm vs hot. You can get a valve that will work at most parts stores. I think old Ford trucks work nicely.
