  1. running a stock rad. in my 40 chev truck with a 235, getting ready to install a "catch tank" / overflow bottle, should it be vented or sealed up tight ? pros vs. cons ? thanks in advance

    it would have to be vented. If it was sealed it would explode...

  4. kinda was my thought but wanted to be sure, thanks Guys , wow 118 views but only 2 replys , amazes me some days lmao , thanks again

  5. In the past I have just drilled the hole a little bigger than the over flow tube, it vents around the tube that way. If you put one of those stainless "street rodder" tanks on, it will act like a surge tank like your modern cars have.

    Why would you want or need any additional replies? The first answer was/is 100% correct. Do you need two hundred guys telling you the same exact thing to convince you? Slam dunk. Done deal ....

  7. I agree fully , just was making note of the ratio of views to awnsers lol that's all ,

    You've not read some of the long threads that answer simple questions then? Just because the first two answers coincide means nothing on the Hamb. ;)

    And yes, vent the tank, have the hose going near to the bottom, so when the motor cools it sucks the expelled water back in.
