New bits

One of the problems that has beset my travels is the radiator using too much water or boiling dry so Murray had lashed up a very Heath-Robinson radiator expansion tank. It was very small and not very well secured. In the May edition of the Octagon Car Club Bulletin, Alan Wakefield had written up how he fitted an expansion tank to MaTilDa, his TD.

He used a bicycle drink bottle and holder and showed where he mounted it. Murray thought that was a very clever idea so rushed out the next morning and brought one from Halfords along with some other bits and pieces and a strip of aluminium bar to mount it on.

A couple of hours later I had a very professional looking expansion tank mounted out of the way of everything else and ready to test on the big adventure next weekend.
