Unhappy Frozen Heater Valve/Anyone Got one?

WAH! No heat and it's cold as the snow begins to fall in the High Desert. Apparently my heater valve is frozen solid and not due to the cold. Does anyone have one spare? I'll happily pay for it as well as the shipping.

Thanks
Sabine

Mine was frozen up too, or so I thought. I was able to free it up with a little lube, a pair of pliers and patience. No leaks and it work like new. If the arm isn't broken off, I'd give it a try.

Sorry I was out all weekend...
Any particular kind of lube I should use? Or will the normal liquid wrench penetrating stuff work?

I bought a replacement from the Suzuki dealer in Ventura. Have you tried the Suzuki dealer on Drivers Way in Lancaster? But, before I needed it, penetrating oil worked for me -- so now I've got a (new) spare.
