Technical Any idea how much pressure (if any)a Honeycomb radiator can take?

    It's from a '31/'32 DB, working towards firing up a 318 I had rebuilt to mate into the tuck, I have the engine placed, need to do a few more things, but wanted to break in the motor this weekend and am afraid running it without a cap might lose too much coolant.

    If I have to, I could rig up a temporary radiator to it, I guess.

    Break it in with water, and keep a hose handy. I have done that before, you can stuff the hose down the radiator and run it just enough to keep it full if you start loosing water. Keeps it real cool too which doesn't hurt it at all.
