I am looking at a rad catch can. Nothing fancy ,one like the picture.( a random photo I found on the web,....ok, ok it is a ford) :eek:



I am curious about the location of the can in the picture. Is the function of the can to only catch overflow, or to also deliver the fluid back to the rad if required? Can the rad suck the fluid back up or is this location too low?

There is a valve at the bottom to drain can.

I remember back years ago I guy I knew had a Jack Daniels bottle mounted as an overflow. Would have been really ******* if he hadn't done it up so nicely.

I put my radiator overflow tank just north of the battery. Autozone, 10 bucks. Hose from rad. neck to the bottom of the can. Hose from the top of the can to the ground (just in case). Fluid goes in at operating temp. (about an inch or two). When car cools, fluid gets sucked back in to the radiator. Works super.
