  • Cool/Heat: Will the expansion tank empty?

    On a Studebaker Avanti...........if one removes the heater hose (manifold end) from the line that feeds the inlet of the heater control valve, will this trigger the expansion tank to empty?

    Thanks

    Yes. Drain off some from the radiator to drop the level to that of the mid-manifold. With the thermostat closed, the surge tank will slowly drain or bleed into the manifold.
