      Current Theme Change   08/01/2017

      With the new update to 4.2 we have gained a lot of new features.  I will post more about those later.  With the change though came some problems with our current themes as the creator of those themes has not made the changes that allow us to take advantage of some of the new features.   I will try to clean up the default theme to make it more appealing for the time being.

Engine coolant system question

Recommended Posts

White95    203

Does anyone know if there's way to use the older style radiators with a 4V?  Ever since I came across this picture, I've been determined to replicate it. I know this is a classic Mustang but my 95 ain't getting no younger :lol: 

 

This way I can keep my radiator I bought from @GearGambler and it'll clean up the engine bay some. Any one have any thoughts, concerns?

The main purpose of the tank is to provide some air space so when the coolant expands it can compress the air instead of running out on the ground. You want the overflow tank higher than the crossover (or even with it) so the air goes in the tank, not in your heads. It's hard to tell from this pic, but the top of the Moroso tank is about 3" higher than the crossover and it runs about 1/2 full.

The cap on the radiator has been cut so it holds no pressure. The overflow from the radiator flows to the degas tank (to a fitting on the back/left side) and down into the thermostat housing through the bottom of the tank, just like the factory setup
.
