What spec Rad Cap should be fitted to a Mk3 Elf?

Post  boris710 on Mon Mar 23, 2015 7:22 pm

I have just aquired my 1969 Mk3 Elf and noticed that the Rad Cap is the 7 Lbs pressure relief type.
Is this correct or should it be a higher Lbs type Cap.
I'm planning on fitting a "Safety" Rad Cap that has the 'lift to release the pressure' lever on the top'

Choices of spec are - 7, 10, 13, 15 or 20 Lbs.
Which type would be correct?

Thanks.

Thanks Big Al.

I more or less came to the same conclusion (theres a 15 Lbs Cap on my 1380S Cooper S) so a 13 lbs cap has been fitted ! Cool
