Coolant tank source

Post by robertverhey »

Hi all

My coolant reservoir (later twin cap style) has finally given up the ghost, after many repairs over the years. So a new alloy one is needed. These are pretty pricey but SJ looks to be the best value, has anyone found a cheaper or better source? Robert

Could a local fabricator make one using the 'good' parts.?

Lotusbits list used SE ones on their site at £40 (but they may have put their prices up). You could always go for Evans Waterless Coolant and a used one - non-SE single chamber if you want - as there won't be any pressure in the cooling system - long term peace of mind. However the coolant and prep fluid would be almost as much as a new alloy one!

Cheers, Richard
