Overflow cannister
Permalink  
 


I am looking for some ideas for an overflow canister for the Bantam.  I can't use anything glass or like a beer can.

It must be traditional.

It must be able to pass NHRA tech inspection

It must be sealed except for the vent

It must be able to mount on the passenger side of a Model A rad/rad shell.

It probably needs about 16 oz of capacity.

 

If you have any ideas or have seen something that would work or have something to sell, please let me know.

 

Warren

I'm using a stainless non insulated water bottle, cheap, lots of different sizes. Sticker/decal it up to be what ever you want.

A guy in London made his out of 2" ABS plastic. No NSRA tech involved on his but that could be accomplished. 
He has about 60-70,000 miles on it. Paint it however you want

Use a used hand held LPG cylinder IT MUST BE FLUSHED OUT 3 TO 4 TIMES WITH HOT SOAPY DISHWASHER DETERGENT BEFORE ANY WORK IS DONE. (max pressure is 360psig for canister) I am assuming this is just catchment
and not part of the rads pressurized system. I used a polished tin plated 1 Lt paint thinner cylinder at the end of the overflow hose just to catch the initial overflow after a rad fillup, with 2 s.s. clamps attached to the 1928 model A rad. It works well and looks like it belongs there.
drive safe

I have been measuring and toying with all the suggestions so far and they are appreciated and none have been discarded.
Letsgo; do you have a picture of your setup?

Thanks everyone
Warren

Here is something to consider. Use an old Coleman stove tank. This is for sale in Trenton. Guy is asking $25. Image may contain: people sitting

Hello again: Yes, I just checked and I have two (and I only need one), both brass and vintage, about 13 - 14 inches tall. I'll check for the years.

One was made in 1925 in Hamilton called Fyr Fyter. I haven't checked the other one yet. What year is the Bantam?

I have a wire mesh drink holder that swivels from an old boat and a nude beer bottle for my 57 pontiac
