    radiator overflow.


    ok... the jeep needs an overflow solution for when she burps coolant.

    i am considering options.... $14 manually drained catch can, or $85 recirculating catch can?


    question... how does a recirculating catch can work? i am not convinced it needs a recirculating one... nor do i know if it would even work?

    radiator overflow.

    The recirculating tanks have a hose extension off the cap that extends into the coolant, while the manually draining just dumps the coolant into the tank. So, you can make the cheap one self filling fairly easy. It all works off a syphon, just like bleeding brakes with the catch bottle. Make sure your cap works with the set-up you go with, although it would be hard to find one today that didn't. Good Luck...
