Custom auto rad project

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

This is my first watercooling build so I made a test set-up (containing: reservoir, pump, auto radiator and a T-section):

what should I do with the overflow of my radiator? (it is connected to the reservoir now)

also the is some oxidation on the outside of the radiator:

anyone an idea how to remove it?

Ive been wanting to see this for ages.

Not much you can do with the overflow either.. what you have done not or cap it off.

The fins are very fragile, there might be something you could soak it in.

Go buy a rerusting agent at any hard ware store, then rise it off with a regular hose. Should come off after a few cycles

I noticed quite some flow from the overflow to the reservoir and that isn't where I want the flow to go. But there is no problem with just sealing the overflow?

Im not an expert on car rads, but are you sure is an overflow, i think its the fill port when its in the car.

The fill port often acts as an overflow. You're both right

Most "normal" radiators (what does Normal mean anyway....) have three different holes in them.

1. Intake from Engine
2. Exhaust from radiator (loops through the engine then back to the intake)
3. Fill cap. (Most modern radiators' fill caps are designed to flush coolant down a tube if the pressure becomes too intense. Better to lose a gallon of coolant than to have your radiator detonate....)
