    Recovery tank height?

    Hi Again Steve, Another disadvantage to the combination expansion/recovery tank in your picture (besides space constraints) is that the coolant recovery tank does not have a side mounted sight glass so that you can visually see the fluid level in the coolant recovery tank. Once installed...

    Radiator Vent Line

    Hey Steve, Looks like you have all you need now. The radiator air bleed valves are available in brass at most race supply houses. Some are spring loaded push button and other screw on caps. The screw on versions are probably more secure long term. A -4 size AN hose is also added to the...

    Radiator Vent Line

    Steve, when i get home tonight i will post some pictures of manual operation weld in vents i added to the very top of my radiator. I also have a welded in line that connects to the expansion tank. Pat, I agree that having both radiator and intake vents are some what redundant but working...

    Upgraded uprights

    Like all car buffs, having a GT40 means there is always something more that you would like to do to your car. And, I have to admit that all the upgrade parts available from Ian at CAV-Canada are a great temptation. Although my CAV already has quite a few significant changes, this next go...
