I have a 68 chevelle 350. with two electric fans. I have one of those crappy pep boys clear plastic coolant recovery tanks that I want to install. where and how have people installed these tanks? I might purchase one of the chrome canister style ones if it would work better. I want to minimize creating innecessary holes in the inner fenders and have it look nice. does anyone have any pics they could post or email me. my email is [email protected]

Chevelleman396, I just removed one of those plastic tanks from my passenger firewall and replaced it with a Moroso aluminum recirc. tank. I fabbed a bracket and hid it away in the fender behind the battery.

There may be room enough there to install the tank you already have.

hmmm interesting. any way you could send a pic of it with the bracket or what size bottle you got. for mine it seems like there is not room. I am considering getting a 70 - 72 buick one that mounts on the passanger side inner fender and is made in a shape where it can mounted on the inner fender. But they are about $150 I am leaning towards something hidden.


one is below.

I added a stainless steel tank right next to the radiator on core support onthe drivers side. There was plenty of room there on my 70.

Here is photo of the Moroso recirculating overflow can mounted to the fender behind the battery tray. I drilled a hole through the inner fenderwell for the drain petcock to protrude through. This allows the can to sit just a bit lower than the top of the radiator.
