Coolant / header tank needed

Post by mjc9967 » Mon Nov 20, 2017 11:17 am

Just had my Mk2 coolant tank become porous, needs replacement ASAP.

Does anyone have one? Same tank in all 800's I believe...

The Volvo tank for alternative replacement is coming back as up to 2 mths to obtain eek!

Funny that - my Mk2 Sterling doesn't. Maybe a post 96MY deletion. Think it was only for cars with trip computers.

Thanks

I think i have a Mk1 Sterling spec tank Mark complete with sensor, i'll need to check though.

Who is the supplier quoting 2 months lead time on the Volvo tank? :shock:
Cheers,
Dave

Just find a secondhand volvo unit. They don't fail with age and an elderly genuine volvo part will be better quality than a cheap new pattern part.

Sorry...
That was meant to say MK1 Sterlings had a sensor, not mk2.
