radiator and surge tank caps
« on: December 22, 2010, 10:23:14 PM »
from reading one of the TM manuals i find the cap should start releasing  between 8-9 psi.
i have found a 7psi cap for the surge tank that i am going to use. the radiator cap is a different story, from reading other military truck forums i have found some are using a fuel tank cap, i think they replace the hard paper gasket with a rubber one. if anyone has a better part number or idea let me know.

surge tank cap
napa number 7031418
stant number 10282

radiator cap     
i am still working on this. stant number 10625 fuel cap fits perfectly but its vented and i haven't found a non vented equivalent yet.
tractor part number IHS337 is close but its not a tight fit

I am having trouble locating a radiator for my M16 roller model and wanted to see if anyone can give me dimensions their radiator so I can source something new.

Hi Tim,
It sounds like you are looking for a radiator and not radiator caps. Is that correct? If so you should create a new post in the parts wanted section. I'm sure someone has a good core for you.

tim

I have about 8 used radiators and I think all would need new cores.
$400 each
I think finding a used one and soldering a new core in is the way to go unless you can find a nos one.

What is everyone using as a radiator cap?  I see Steve mentioned a venting cap earlier in this thread, is that what everyone is using?  I assume a venting cap would cause the expansion tank to be useless.

Thanks!

just don't buy one of Garys. they are a vented fuel cap with a weak spring type latch. don had one at tower park that was leaking everywhere.
