Soldering the overflow tube

Postby ShawnAgne » Fri Dec 07, 2018 9:06 pm

Ok I resoldered the overflow tube and needed a 3rd arm. Just wondering how you guys do it so that way in the future I know, plus I need to resolder the one on the 300 here too.

make sure the tube is clear, I found many are plugged up and nothing will flow through them

I know what you mean about a third hand.

Just thinking out loud: could you use a wood dowell thru the filler neck into the tube opening to hold it in place while soldering? Then remove the dowell when done.

I have used a tapered drill bit and flaired the tip of the piece on the radiator. If you are careful you can get tip so the tube slips inside enough.

I then use a two-part epoxy instead of solder mostly because of my several failed attempts to solder it correctly.

Epoxy is a good idea, be easier to use and be stronger. That is what I'll use on the 300, thanks.
