What is the updated reservoir? The later like 85-87 CGT?
And how about a coolant Temp guage, that would certainly offer more info
than a light.
I’ve got one and it always seems to let me know!
And in that I’ve got my 10v JUST ABOUT TO COME OUT! It probably won’t be
overheating for the next few days!

When a fellow named Andy unknowningly lost all his coolant, warping his cyl
head - I think a recommendation was made to upgrade to the newer resevoir.
The point was it has a low coolant indicator which would have tipped him
off. If this is true - it might be a useful upgrade - assuming the newer
type hose will be available for a while.
Others - does this make sense? Any BTDT on adding a low coolant dash light
on these older cars?
