How do you fill a radiator w/ no cap?

I just bought a 3 Core Alluminum Radiator for my car.
My stock radiator has a place to fill it on top with a radiator cap.
The new Radiator has no place to fill it & no place to even put a cap.
How do I fill this new radiator???
Never had one like this before.
Thx, Hellish Horse

I would assume you bought a radiator for a GT, their cap is on the expansion tank

V6 rad



cap bottom right

GT Rad



this one has an aftermarket expansion tank but you get the idea

Is an Expansion tank & an Overflow tank the same thing? If so...How do you fill your radiator thru it? The GT Radiator should still work in my 6er right?

are the expansion and over flow the same? in purpose they are similar, but between the gt and V6 they are different setup's

it's a gt radiator for a reason lol return it and get a V6 one
