And I want to build a tank, would it be like the 80's cars with it 2/3rd filled or empty like you are say'n until a boil over and then sucked back in afterwards basicly always being empty providing the hose in the overfollow you listed hose collected every drop when it was being sucked back in..
You could retrofit one from a 74-80 chevy truck gearhead!
Check on LMC. THey're 20 bucks with cap. I used one on my old 67 gmc. The 74-80 one has ears on it to bolt it to the rad support.
