Hey Guys,

I just cleaned my reservoir tank, and was wondering if I need to prime the line going to the radiator? if so, how would you do it without getting a mouth full of anti-freeze?

Thanks!

Josh

What he said.

Just put a new one on mine and after one or two cycles it self-primes and is always ready. No worries.
