RE: [DML] Re: Sight glass coolant tank

IMHO David is a fine gentleman, extremely knowledgeable, always helpful,
and a precious resource in this forum. In no way is it appropriate to
address him with this tone

on earth would you have to come back and say no he flew.

I don't mean to "chastize" anyone. I only point out that there are
alternatives. The stock cap does work and of course there can be no
leaks. Heck, you can't have any leaks even with a sight glass! Next
time the motor is hot, try removing the cap to "just check the level"!
Even with the overflow/recovery bottle it is still advisable to remove
the cap (only when cold) to make sure the header bottle is full. I do
it once a wek when I check the oil and the tires.
