I put this here because the other coolant leak thread was played out. Anyway I said I would do something to stop the coolant from sloshing out of the reservoir which it did whenever I drove my Bronco. Well no more. :toothless

Here's a little something I whipped up...

The cap/plug with two O rings on it...


The plug inserted into the opening in the reservoir...notice how clean it is around it??


The reservoir after I drove about 10 miles and usually would smell coolant and when I would get home it would be all over the top of the reservoir and on the fender wells, sway bar etc. NO MORE THOUGH! Nice and clean now and the coolant stays in the res.


And of course a little video...that's always fun...HAHAHAHAHA :rofl:

Will it allow air to escape to accommodate the expansion and contraction of the coolant?

x2 was thinking that all along....

Yes there's a 5/32 through hole in it. You can see it in the pictures and the video

Looks like it has a hole drilled thru the center.

Well Greg does this look like a yam to you??? This is yours. O rings installed tomorrow and you should have it on Monday. Don't bake it or nuke it. It won't taste good.:toothless

If your going to make these and sell them you need to pony up for a Vendor membership.

I think I can make anything I want. It's selling them that's the hard part and I don't think one little sale justifies a vendor's fee. I just won't offer them any more. Don't make anything on them anyway. I'd have to sell a hundred of them just to pay the fee. You guys can go back to using aluminum foil or rags or whatever.:whiteflag:toothless
