over flow tank

so I installed an aluminum radiator and electric fan.since the factory overflow tank wraps around the factory shroud it is now useless.i bought an aftermarket aluminum cylinder shaped tank and I can't quite find a spot that I like.so i was wondering how important an overflow tank even is.i wouldnt think it would affect anything not having one, would it.

if you overheated it would go all over the ground!

the next question would be from normal operating temp to cool down does the fluid flow back and forth between the radiator and the overflow.

Re: over flow tank

dude, u need the overflow tank. where u put it is up to you. think of the overflow tank as an insurance policy for your motor.
