Default heater valve

hi to all just got a cruiser 2 months ago not with out its problems but was wondering about the one way valve on the heater pipe as got engine out and took it off to find a small hole inside about 6mm the way it looks with arrow on the outside as if water can only go the one way as this looks like the only way for the water bypass till the thermostat opens
the other thing I wanted to ask was what kind off pressure would be in the cooling system after about 10min idling as fitted replacement engine took off rad cap and blew water up about 12 -14 inches

I know not of this thing you call, "heater control valve". Where be this nefarious device on thy beloved PT Cruiser?

As for the pressure on the radiator. It should be exactly the same as printed on the radiator cap. And for 12 inches or so of fluid to gush out when removing the cap from a hot engine, unusual not that be.
