The product was every thing I believed i

August 10, 2013
I searched your product magazine for a part that I felt would perform the function that I was looking for. Within that parts book I found the 17 inch over flow tank that I felt would not only function well but would meet my expectations for being visually pleasant and flow with the appearance that I wanted in me engine compartment of my 33 Ford Street Rod. It does perform well and met the appearance requirements I demanded. You are a very good company to do business with. You have the products I require, and your people are pleasant and knowledgble. Thank you. You will get more of my business.
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.

What size tank would I need for a 72 chevelle 350 w/ a/c? Would I need to change my radiator cap and does this unit allow for coolant to go back into the radiator upon cooling down? Finally, does it come with all parts needed to install? Thanks

Measure the are you have available to mount the tank before ordering. The biggest consideration is the space you have to mount it. The tank will draw coolant back into the radiator as long as you use a radiator cap with that provision built in. You will need to supply mounting hardware and hoses to connect this expansion tank.
