Re: Coolant puzzle

You all were exactly right. I found another tank right next to the hot water heater with a pressure cap and an overflow hose.

It makes a lot more sense now.

Last question, well maybe not.

Is that header tank supposed to be full of coolant. It was about 4 inches deep and only had a inch or two in the bottom. I added another inch but didn't fill it.
Should I?

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
