  • Radiator Overfill Bottle



    Call it what you want, but it works. in the spare of the moment.

    Go buy a 2 litre bottle of Coke or whatever your preference is & drink it.... clean out the bottle & peal of the label so no one knows :lol: & mount it w/ tye-wraps in the engine compartment & fill it a little over 1/2 way w/anti-freeze & there you have it...... a quick & cheap way to have a overfill bottle.

    P.S. Keep the hose from the radiator cap a 1/2" off the bottom of the bottle & cut it @ an angle aprox 1" for a pick-up angle. Oh & I left off the cap. Hose dia. 5/16"

    Just a thought, & I have it on my CJ & it works.

    Have A Great Day!

    I've got a lil square aftermarket one that I picked up at VatoZone for around 5 bucks. Its small and was easy to mount out of the way.

            I'm using a windshield washer reservoir (spelling?) out of an older Chevy pickup. Already had a screen for the pickup at the bottom of the bottle and the hose hooked right up to the nipple on the lid. All I had to do was drill two holes in the passenger side fender, and it fit like it was supposed to be there.

            Its price was the best of all, free!

                I don't have one. Never had a problem so far, unless I over fill it and then it blows it out. I tried one of those square ones but I think it was real close to my alternator or something so I decided to go with the stock set up of not having one.
