i saw a sweet coolant overflow resevior that brian soderblom used on his bronco so i went to the yard to find it today. I got super lucky and found a 94 gt mustang...how sweet. I pulled the reservior, but i noticed it had a crack in it. it wasnt too bad so i bought it (2.50 because it was cracked). i was wondering what i could use to patch it. i was thinking just like silicone or something. maybe a gasket sealer?? any help would be appreciated. thanks.

were there GT heads on the motor? I want those, and Ill get you a brand new coolant reservoir. Also check town cars and marquis. Lots of fords have different ones. You and I are going through the same process, and seem to be posting the same questions

You can use JB Weld also. I've used it to patch a radiator and a gas tank before and both were still holding years later.

All disposable plastic objects & all Ford plastic parts have the type of plastic & the recycling class molded in somewhere. Check carefully, then find an adhesive that's made for that kind of plastic. Just as a guess, I think that tank would be High Density PolyEthylene (HDPE) or maybe PolyPropylene (PP).
I can say, with coolant covered boots, silicone does not do the job !

Maybe I'll try the 3M stuff, like Gackner has or some epoxy (though I think I tried epoxy too?).

You can also try the plastic welding kit from HF. It works for some people on some plastics, takes some experimenting though.

It's been posted in the last 10 days, but here you go again(your search skills are suspect !);



You'll find em' on stock 1990 Lincoln Town cars and probably CVs and MGMs too. Anything from those cars has got to be cheaper than stang parts.

BTW

That pic is of my Town Car, not my Bronco, with the Taurus fan conversion.

On my Bronco I use the stock 86 resevoir because it don't eat up as much inner fender room as the later broncos, especially the way I have it mounted.

By simply shifting my stock 86 resevoir combo from the fender to the back of the rad support (in photo);



It allows me to do this;



or more lately this;



Comprend-eh? (Spanish with a Canadian twist)

Six...forget the grill...a good friend of mine worked for a lawn and garden company and would mow corporation lawns. He would throw his leftovers on the manifold of the tractor and by noon he had a piping hot meal! One time he overcooked it and casued a little bit of a fire! :histerica

I too am an intake chef

When I was 16 I helped a trucker buddy deliver goods up and down the 401 (Canada's major highway). He used to cook us up some stroffer's TV dinners the same way.

With all the venting and leaks that goes on under my Bronco's hood:shocked , I'll stick to the BBQ though
