Default Model b coolant level indicator

Some time back I opened a thread on Model B coolant level.

Rather than guessing where the coolant was and continually
topping up after a run; I made up this arrangement.
Remove the rear water pump bolt and fit various items made up on a winters' evening

Essential that the sight tube is able to vent back in to the top of the radiator !

As long as you know the coolant is above the top of the pump you're up and running.
