The cheap way to move secondary water to another tank is a bilge pump, 500-gph for 20 bucks from Fleabay is hard to beat. You can even afford a spare at that price!

Have three in the boat  8-)  .  The top two flow way more than the bottom one and were a lot more expensive than $20, but a $20 one like I used in the intercooler tank or what Sid is talking about move a lot of water,

Thanks guys. When I first saw the bilge pump reference (on my idiotPhone) I got nervous - I thought SW was when the flats dried out, not when they were flooded but then I clocked the reference to shifting water from tanks; I like he annotated pictures too though having three in a boat is either extreme conditions or redundancy or a leaky boat. As long as the leak is not at the end of the boat I am sitting at I am okay.

I am still exploring (cost effective) ways to get a rad in a tank; I had a minor light bulb moment when I realsied a specialist made me two fuel tanks in alloy for the Lotus Europa for less than the rad people were going to charge for the water tank so I have sent an email - I could do it in fibreglass but there is a cost vs. time equation here too.

Aluminum is more desirable, it'll radiate heat, fiberglass will insulate.

John,
Looking through my "junk" and I have a Harrison heat exchanger that has -10 fittings and is approx. 13.75" wide x 9" tall x 3.5" thick. I can throw it in the box with the steering if you want. $50

John, I'm looking at the D2904 for my car. They are 4". The D1445 is 2.5". I think that's what Ronnie was referring to.  :cheers:
P.s; Was that "Rockin' Rochen"? (ouch)

 Hi John
   Wayno has the info correct I run the Goodyear D2904. The first tire I ordered was the D-1445 but it was way to light duty for what were doing I sent those tires back and ordered the D-2904.

Wayno i think to make things right you should pick them up for John and hand deliver them. Two small tires should be fine as carry on luggage.   :cheers:
