    Question radiator reservoir

    Am I confused (happens all the time) but isn't the overflow can included with the complete kit? None with mine so I guess I need to go find one.

    Yes, the complete kit comes with an overflow tank. Check your inventory. If it isn't on there, call FFR and see if they can help you out.

    Did not show up on the inventory, nor is it listed on the b/o list. I only realized it wasn't there as I am that far along on the build. I'll check with FFR but I'm way beyond my 45 days.

    I just realized that you are building a 33. I know it's part of the roadster complete kit, but can't say for sure for the 33. Still worth a call to FFR.

    For my Gen 1 kit, the expansion tank was in Box 10F with other cooling system components - radiator fan, hoses, etc.

    It comes with the 33 kit. It’s round, about 3” diameter, and about 1.5 feet long or so. In the box with cooling system stuff. Hoses etc. might be 10F as someone said. Don’t sweat the 45 day thing. They’ve helped me once or twice when i was outside that window. They usually pretty good with customer service.

    Not in any of the boxes. I've sent a email to ffr asking about it. Is it aluminum or plastic? I've used aluminum cans on other builds and would here but not a plastic can. Thanks for the input.

    If they ship the same part for the hot rod as they do for the roadster, it should look like the one in this picture mounted on the passenger side F panel.
