Default FC Inline Coolant Heater (waterline shutoff valves)

I am going to replace the original inline coolant heater with a new PHILLIPS & TEMRO Series 41 Heater. It appears to be the same heater except the it installs the opposite way (ie: upside down from the way the original was installed).

So, my question. While crawling around under the engine checking hoses etc - I located 4 shutoff valves. The front sporlan valves (one for front heat and one for summer/winter heat have been removed and replaced with manual valves. The other 2 valves are on the return line from the chassis heat (hot water tank & heaters) - why did BB install 2, one right by the engine inlet (curb side) and another one on the opposite side by the battery box? These valves are installed as per the blueprint supplied by BB. (See attached photo of blueprint)

maybe to isolate the heater/HWT loop if a leak should occur,
or to drain the radiator and 3208 for maintenance and repair without draining the entire system

As usual, Bill is correct. You will appreciate those valves when radiator removal day comes.

Thanks, that is what I was thinking. Not quite rad removal time (no swing rad on this one), but I do have to drain the Rad/Block to change the pump and replace a few lines.

Some days I wonder if my list is getting shorter - I don't think so! Need the heater to work cause planning on driving to FL then CA, leaving here Dec 1st
