Gasman, thanks for the note. Napa's website kind of stinks, but it did lead me to find a few others on other websites that are potentially good.
Look here......

The T handle can be changed out for a knob. Standard shank. I use it on my oil cooler butterfly, and it works great.

Just replying as an update now that it's summer again.

The new control cables are a big help. I do still have a slight leak on the pilots side yet, so I may have to resort to adding something thin for a film on the flapper door to completely get it to seal the hot air out. But without those locking cables with the pushbutton, it would be a losing battle keeping the heat out.

120+ hours on it now and it's been going great.
