Are any of you using a coolant recovery system? If so can you recommend a source for a good one. I have looked at JEGS & Summit and didn't care for what they were offering. Thanks! bill

I thought of doing that when mine started overflowing instead I put a new 15lb radiator cap on and mine is good...

I use a Jack Daniel's whisky bottle. Made a mount ou of a 1 inch wide strip of aluminum with a bend on the bottom to keep bottle from slipping down.Bolted to the core support and hose clamps to hold the bottle. Got a dual valve radiator cap.

I like whitetalehunter's use of a Jack Daniels bottle, my only problem would be after draining the Jack Daniels bottle I would not remember what I was supposed to do with the empty bottle!
A higher rated pressure cap is probably the way I should go. Thanks! bill
