What is the difference...

What's the difference between a water valve (located in line with the heater up next to the firewall) for an ac car vs a non ac car? I see them listed for fairlanes etc with or without ac but when it comes to my 69 galaxie they list them but not for
a galaxie with ac? I'd like to buy one and put it on anyway but i don't know. Thanks.

On my 65 with AC there is a valve that regulates how much vacuum the water valve gets. Not sure if non-ac cars have that feature but I don't see why it would make a difference to the water valve.
Only other thing I can think of is the hose size from the valve to the core may be different.

Putts drives a 1965 customized Galaxie. Rebuilt 390, 4100 electric choke on a Performer, MX, AC, PS, PB w Scarebird front discs on Cragar 17" S/S.

Thanks for the input Puttster I think your correct I'm going to order one from dearborn, called them they said it will work the listing on their site is just a little confusing. And the best thing is it's only $50 to my door, ugh.
