I have no heater shut-off valve?

Just crawled under the bus. I can't find a shut-off valve for the heaters/radiator. I have a '95 Bluebird TC2000, and I'm trying to get the heaters out so I can finish pulling subfloor up and get the floor patched and rustoleumed.

I've looked in the engine, underneath, in the front, down the hatch... Nada.

The switch panel by the drivers seat has a button for "heat pump", also two for "RR heat" and two for ""US heat" so maybe "heat pump" controls whether the coolant is flowing to the heaters?

I'm planning to cut and loop the lines. Think it's ok to just go for it? I've been collecting 5 gallon buckets.

I couldn't find shutoff valves on mine either.

I pinched the heater hoses with vice grips and then cut the lines. This didn't completely eliminate spillage but kept it manageable.

I caught most of what did spill in a bucket and disposed of it properly.

Just in case you didn't know, antifreeze is very toxic and smells/tastes good to critters. Don't leave it sitting out in an open container.

Yep. Buckets with lids straight to the nearest Advance.

Vice grips is a good call.
