Purchased the return bottle at Autozone, about 5 years ago. Note: The lower Black marker line is my cold fill level, the upper Black line is about the level when at operating temperature, upon cool down of course it returns back to the lower level.Hi All,
Cleveland Crush where did you get that overflow bottle?
As far as the systems go the best would be above the radiator with a portion of return heater hose running to and from it with a 13-16lbs cap. ( maybe above evap tank) You would just put a cap for filling purposes on radiator. This would give you an air gap in tank, just like the old radiator in the mustang and the brand new system. Look at new mustang degas tank stuff. Its just an Idea I have not tried it.
That Dayco looks mighty close to what I have Steve but not exact (it looks like it will slide into the fender extension space fine). No name on mine to pass on to you.Is this it?

I added the overflow tank. It was quite easy and I found what I think is a good sized, small tank with a bracket already attached. I got a angled piece of metal, cut, bent & drilled it which was the most laborious part. I used a threaded hole already present. It functions well. Here is the step by step if anyone is interested.I want to add a radiator overflow tank. I know in years past they had a petcock for drainage. But everything I see has a vacuum system moving coolant back and forth. My question is, does that concept work on our old radiators and caps? If I connect to overflow tube to a tank will it pull back and forth or just be a reservoir for overflow?
