Been looking for a while at adding a header tank swirl pot into the coolant system so here how im doing it.
Header tank is from a s2 escort ( uk ) rs turbo ebay £5
In order to do this you need to move the power steering tank towards front of car. I was fortunate to find a 165 power steering tank and bracket for free
and its perfect..
No pipes were cut just extended.
I removed the a/c fuse box bracket and in the space thats there i located the new tank it fits perfect and bracket reaches the rubber mount near radiator thats used for aircon pipe support. I had to add a hose clip as my mount had started to tear so i glued it back together ( rubber ) and supported with hose clamp.
Photos were from a dirty lense on my phone sorry..
Then i extend the power steering pipe down about 30cm from cam cover and pipe that comes out of radiator area can be bent around ( rubber ) to fit onto outlet of power steering tank.
once you have room i made a cage for tank ( simple wrapped alloy around tank and bracket to wing )
i than added a bracket as support to header tank tab at bottom.
I now just need to T into outlet from radiator to bottom of header tank and take feed from rad cap to small inlet in header.
Theres enough room for 22mm pipe to come out under power steering tank to radiator pipe.
All looks factory ish lol..
This is all with aircon in etc...
Once in i can remove overflow bottle and free up some space.
In the outlet from head im goint to fit a swirl pot and that will then feed to header tank also.
Will post more pictures once all done...
