That is the heater valve. https://www.minimania.com/part/ADU9102/Classic-Austin-Mini-Heater-Control-Valve

You will also need a new gasket when you replace the valve.

Hey Friends!

I’m trying to figure out what this part is for the life of me and I can’t figure it out. So I’ve come to the experts. My coolant completely leaked out from this thing and I either need to replace it or some kind of gasket inside but I have no idea what it is so hoping you guys can help me identify it. And give me your thoughts to on what I need need to replace based on the coolant leak.

Thanks! Dan
