Perfect

I have a 32 Ford Roadster, and wasn't real sure of which size to get, but the 17" was a great fit. Now the underside of the car stays clean, and the tank works great. [...]...AAAA+

Good value

July 14, 2010
Needed an overflow tank for my 39 Chevy Coupe, but limited space. This fits in nicely - just a bit of trimming on the included angle brackets to get it where I wanted it. Looks great. Only problem is that it has 1/4" tubes and the stock radiatior has 5/16".
Pros:
  • nicely made
  • Well chromed
  • Good fit 39 Chevy
Yes, I recommend this product.

I need to know how many inches from top mounting hole to bottom mounting hole. I have a 1923 Ford coupe with a Aluminum Radiator for 1932 Ford with Small Block Chevy. I was just wanting to know if this 17 Inch Stainless Steel Expansion Tank will mount to the side of this radiator. That's why I was asking how many inches from top mounting hole to bottom mounting hole. If this won't mount can you tell me which on will work? Thank you

The mounting tabs are 12 inches apart. This tank is intended to mount on the side of the radiator, it does come with some small brackets that would allow you to mount it on the radiator support.

This tank is 11 1/4" center to center from the top to bottom mounting bracket. You will have to measure your car to be sure it will fit.

Is the over all height 17" or just the tank 17"? How much does it hold?
