  • Looking for cap and neck, for custom coolant reservoir

    I have no idea where to local one.

    I searched on summitracing and they have an EARL radiator neck (http://www.summitracing.com/parts/EAR-166015ERL/) but for that price, I might as well buy a coolant reservior at $45

    I would prefer a cap and a threaded neck so I can just weld the threaded neck to a tank I will built out of aluminum. Ideally, less then $15. Anyone know where to start.

    Thanks.

    If you are looking for a radiator cap style then I have no answer.

            Get jic fitting in the size you want cut it in half (use a union) as that is all you require.
            Weld it to your tank and get a jic cap for it and you are done.

              Another variation on Ronnie's reply....

              Use a threaded bung and a NPT pipe plug for the cap. You could weld a "wing nut style" handle on the pipe plug,or knurled knob for easy removal. Would look trick if done right, and the least expensive thing I can think of.

              You can get aluminum bungs on ebay.

                      I have always used pro-werks for components for tank projects. They are the cheapest around in my opinion.

                        Thanks for the suggestion. It seems like a cap and threaded neck is more expensive then I thought. At $37.00 for just a cap and neck, I can buy a universal coolant reservoir "Made of Billet 6061 Aluminum and then TIG Welded with Billet Aluminum CNC machined fittings and then Polished to a high quality shine" for $45.00. It will be hard for me to compete with that.

                        I use ATP Turbo (www.atpturbo.com) for my mandrel bend pippings, turbo fittings and misc turbo stuff. It's only $44 for 3" SS U Bend.
