My mirrors move a lot on my '64. I think they are Ames replacement mirrors. I liked the factory one that I had previously. It had a draw screw to tighten it down. But I wanted to add a passenger...

I was looking at the threaded stem. Thought it might be a double seating plunger or gate that would need to be fully closed or open. It looks like there is a packing nut on it. So should be able to...

This discussion has me thinking about heater control valves. This one is cheap. I wonder if it can be used to control flow like a ball valve. Or is it only designed for open or closed.

I don't think retorqueing the bolts is going to fix it. Spend the time pulling it apart.
