Thermostat Housing Pressure Cap

Thermostat Housing Pressure Cap

That catch tank with that system wont work as the pipe from the thermostat housing needs to get to the bottom of the catch tank to draw the coolant back in to the system as the engine cools down.

Heated windscreen fitting on se6

Is it just me or does anyone else see these photos on this thread and a few others all upside down or is it my works PC doing it perhaps?

se6 chassis and build progress.

Upside down on my PC, as with quite a few other posts, and with the gear stick coming out where it is it took me a while to understand which way up it should be. There's been a lot of photo's upside down since this drag and drop change was made.
