Thanks to a tip from TC member Rich Walchuck, Sr., I ordered and installed a tank from a '82 Trans Am. Fits and works well in my Elky. Let me know if you need any additional info or would like to see a picture.

Seeing as I rarely have the need for windshield washer fluid. What are the thoughts on using the windshield washer jar, in it's stock location on a 70, for a coolant recovery device? Just run a line across the back top of the radiator over to the jar. I believe the plastic of the washer jar is strong enough. Might have to fabricate a special top though. Haven't done it yet, but that's my plan.

I ran my washer fluid bottle as a radiator overflow in my 66 nova with a 350 for years. it worked great. the capacity was fine. i ran an around 4 foot hose from the radiator cap outport around front under the rad cover, through a hole in the rad support and to the jug in its original mounting possition. it was hidden and looked good if you could see it at all. also consider the possibility od using a length of copper tube to feed all the way to the jug with rubber hose connections on ends. this way you can control the bends of the tube more rigidly then rubber hose. remember the lingth of line is erelivent in the function of the overflow and recovery system. just change the rad cap to i think it was 12 or 15 pound cap. the washer tub works fine, just make sure the tube from the jug cap goes to the bottom of the jug or it will not reverse flow. this is not a high pressure system so no need woring about hose strengths or leak connections. you all need to see my picture of the skylark over flow jug. don't dismiss it so quickly! it looks way better than any of these after market jobs. trust me. It may not be chevy but at least it's GM and the right year range! [email protected] I'll send pic.
