I checked the parts manuals and 511774 is the right part number for all Vitesse. Double checking against what is actually there - The first of the pictures is the earlier 1600. The second one applies to late 1600 and all 2 Litres. Same valve as the makers stated.

The 13/60 valve points in the opposite direction and if fitted the right way for the Vitesse the heater controls will work back to front i.e. pulling it out will turn the heat off. The 13/60 part number is 560611. Been there done it!

I modified one over 30 years ago! If I remember there is a handed part of the assembly where the cable clamp is. Though the lever can be changed to the other side the cable clamp is on the wrong side. You have to bolt on an extension piece of metal to the existing clamp fixing point and then use this as a new fixing point. It's only a short piece.

Hope that makes sense, it's a long time since I did this and the memory is lacking the full detail.
