If I understand the flow to the heater core, this is a bad design.
Its installed in-line with the heater core, either the input or output line.
It is only fully functional "IF" the heat is in the any place but cold position.
It will get residual heat if the flow is off or low
Who wants the heat on all the time.
For this design to work all the time it would need to be in the flow all the time not whenever the heater is used.
So it would need to have a heater core bypass or be installed in the larger rad hose.
