Expansion tank

Post by Elephant88 » Wed Feb 13, 2019 6:18 pm

I have an expansion tank on my reliant, I was told to put the pressurised cap on the expansion tank and the non pressurised one on the radiator. Can anyone tell me if this is correct?

Is it an expansion tank, or is it a simple overflow reservoir?

Photos would help.

on the official expansion tank reliant fitted they had a non pressure blanking cap on the radiator and a 11lb cap on the expansion tank

but many people have a 7lb pressure cap on the radiator and the cap as it makes it a overflow bottle then
