Series 200TDI radiator reservoir

Been trying to figure out the best set up for a reservoir in my Series with the 200TDI. Best I can come up with is this Defender V8 one, but what do I do with the 5/8 return on the bottom. Pretty sure in the V8 it tee's back into a heater return line, but the only way to mount it in the Series bay puts it lower than the heater line. Any suggestions?

Are you absolutely set on using Rover parts or are you open to other options?

You could just use the stock "y" hose made for the defender 200tdi. It would just splice it in to the W

Yes it normally tees into the lower rad hose.

That would be a better solution than putting a bolt up the line and clamping to tight to avoid leaks.

The expansion bottle should be mounted so that the filler cap is slightly above the level of the radiator that way air will collect in the expansion bottle not the top of the radiator. The hose from the bottom of the expansion bottle is Tee'd in the the bottom radiator hose that returns coolant to the engine.
You don't want to be overheating that engine.
