How big a header tank?

Canal Boat - - Back Cabin -

QI have a one-litre pres­surised header tank fit­ted to my 2.0-litre Yan­mar skin tankcooled en­gine. I need to re­place the header tank be­cause the neck fit­ting has be­come chewed up. The only suit­able tank I can find is of five litres ca­pac­ity. Would this be okay to fit?

ATONY REPLIES... It will be fine ex­cept that you would need a bit more an­tifreeze if you fill it to the ‘Max­i­mum’ mark. This sounds like a new tank you are think­ing of buy­ing, which is fine, but you could also think about look­ing for one from a scrapped truck which would do the job.

need to be small
