sealed cooling system

Postby cococola » Mon Jul 09, 2018 10:15 pm

I wonder if it is possible to fit a sealed cooling system with an expansion bottle on my Morris, if so would it be a case of replacing my radiator or can the system be incorperated into what I have please?
I would be interested to know if anybody has done this and if it works well.

I had a sealed cooling system fitted to my Minor way back about 30 years ago now. I used the original radiator with a radiator cap that had no pressure relief and just sealed the filler neck. A pipe ran from the Minor overflow pipe to a Marina expansion bottle fitted with a pressure cap.
The system worked well and never gave any problems.
See photo below for details.

Hi Phil thanks for the reply, I like the idea of this set up would I be able to use a Rover 25 expansion bottle instead I wonder?
