What is this part......

I believe this is an expansion tank that connects to the top of the radiator on a Series truck but what exactly is this part? If one hose connects to the top of the radiator then where does the other hose connect? Also, what fluid goes in this reservoir?

The other hose is a vent. It connects to nothing. It is an overflow tank NOT an expansion tank.

So basically one end connects to the top of the radiator and the other just hangs loose. Does the tank remain empty when hooked up or is there supposed to be some fluid in the tank.

Damn....you're quick to the draw on that part number. Impressive.

Thanks

It should be partially full of coolant. The workshop manual says 1/4 full when cold. Pretty much like every other car in the world other than modern Land Rovers.

The vent hose is meant to go through the supports on the side of the bottle that you see in your picture.

You should download or purchase the workshop and parts books. They will explain everything.

I'm sure that would prove helpful.

Is there a link to the download that you know of?
