Re: Overfilling with Pentosin


    The pentosin should be at the "max" line with the fluid hot and the bomb
fully charged. This leaves room in the reservoir to accept the fluid which
comes out of the bomb if you discharge it completely. Take your car for a
drive to warm up the fluid and remove enough pentosin to get it down to the
"max" mark, otherwise you may be dribbling pentosin off and on for some
