Re: Coolant catch tank

Hi Stuart, Whilst I agree with what you say in option 1, once the coolant has reached the correct level, you will no longer have coolant spewing over the road. My rad cap is 13 lbs and has G910 Y6 stamped on it. One other consideration when selecting a rad cap is the depth of the sealing ring as the...

Re: Coolant catch tank

I am confused about this catch tank scenario. From what I can make out a catch tank is fitted to collect coolant that escapes when it expands, and is then sucked back into the system when it cools thus preventing coolant loss onto the road. The expansion tank that we have on our cars works on a simi...

Re: Hood for a 289 fia

I now leave the wind wings forward. In the past I have folded them back, but kept forgetting when I opened the door and hitting them with the sidescreen. The only problem I have now is that they get dirty from traffic film which in turn makes the mirrors difficult to use, and the low interior mirror...

Re: Hood for a 289 fia

I would agree with Peter that zip-up sidescreens would be a pain. I have seen these on several cars and they just don't look right. Having once more just driven over 400 miles with my hood fitted I must say it is not an unpleasant experience and the sliding windows are great for controlling ventilat...

Re: Prop shaft speedo induction sender on jag rear end

Do the special Jaguar bolts allow for the addition of the flanges? It is important to use genuine Jag bolts and not bog standard High Tensile ones as they are special fit.

What gearbox are you using? Would it not be better using the gearbox sender?

Re: Coolant catch tank

HI Jerry, I have a Ford 302 with Gerry's expansion tank fitted. My car has done over 40,000 miles in thirteen years and has never given me any serious heating issues even in temperatures of 38 degrees. When cold, the level of coolant in the expansion tank is approx half full and level with the inlet...
