They clean up using Milton Sterilising Tablets if you are young, or Steradent Tablets if you're an old fogey ... I started on Milton's now I'm using Steradent :shock: How time flies...

Did you go for the slightly dearer one with the eyesight or the bog standard one ?

Can you post a photo of it in situ ?

Will go and take a picture in a minute :) went for one with sight glass. I thought the bottom connection could have been a bit further round.

I've seen one on Jim's (Muley) car a few years ago at Silverstone and it looked good. I think it was a BRG but he's had that many I can't be certain :twisted:

Thought it would be nice for newer members of LEC to see what a shiny header tank does in smartening up the engine bay
