Overflow tank

In the forums, it’s been discovered that the coolant overflow tank is too small for almost any engine larger than a 302. Since mine is significantly larger… More mods!!

I bought a Canton tank from Summit that looked like it would fit well. There’s not much space left in the engine compartment, so I decided to mount it to the front X member. Since the mounts would never line up, I made an aluminum plate to secure to the X member with 2″ Adel clamps. Then I would bolt the coolant overflow tank to the plate.

This worked well. It left enough room to get the hoses to the fittings and fits right between the battery box and the power steering.

Locked it in place, ran the hose from the pressure cap and an overflow hose to the ground and filled it up. I’ll be running it to check a few things one weekend soon… This will be one of the things to check.

Getting pretty busy in the engine compartment….
