    Looking to add one to my setup, but don't want to spend the big doe on an aluminum one. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    This resevoir came out of an older cadi. 3.00 at the local wrecking yard. 5 bucks or so for hose and clamps. I cut the neck off of and old pump and welded a washer with a 5/8 hole in it to the top. Then welded a piece of 5/8 od tubing into the washer to give me a hose mounting point. Then used two hose clamps and a short piece of rad hose to clamp that to my existing pump neck. The low pressure feeds up behind the A/C pump to the cadi res the gravity feeds through the 5/8 hose to the top of the factory pump. It seems to work great.

    Mine has a similar setup from an '87 Corvette. But I also have the pump from the 'vette, which doesn't have an integral resevoir. It just has the hose connections. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
