I bit the bullet and bought an aluminum coolant expansion tank for my "new" '83 GTV6 since the one that was in it was leaking.... Had to drill a couple of new holes to attach it since it did not quite line up the stock mounting holes. Got it in and filled up the coolant per the service manual. While the engine was warming up things seemed to be going pretty good until the temperature got up to about 180 degs and then the coolant started spurting from the clear plastic "sight gauge". The tank did not come with any hose clamps on the sight gauge tubing. I added some and will check it out in the morning to see if that fixes things but just wanted to see if anyone thinks I am missing something? I bought a new radiator cap to go with it and it says .7 on it.
