FIG. 5 is a right side elevation view of the multi-port valve of FIG. 1.

FIG. 6 is a left side elevation view of the multi-port valve of FIG. 1.

FIG. 7 is a top plan view of the multi-port valve of FIG. 1.

FIG. 8 is a bottom plan view of the multi-port valve of FIG. 1.

FIG. 9 is a front isometric view of the valve body of the multi-port valve of FIG. 1.

FIG. 10 is a rear isometric view of the valve body of FIG. 9.

FIG. 11 is a front elevation view of the valve body of FIG. 9.

FIG. 12 is a rear elevation view of the valve body of FIG. 9.

FIG. 13 is a right side elevation view of the valve body of FIG. 9.
