Re: Heater hose routing FC-170
The original tank is not a recovery or overflow tank. Overflow/recovery tanks vent after the radiator cap through a "dump/retrieve" hose. These do not have system pressure in them. The original is a surge tank which serves the same purpose at the upper tank of a "normal" radiator that has a cap on it and has system pressure in it. An additional overflow tank can be added also but not replace the surge tank.
