Default Ranger cooling questions

Anyone drill and tap head at the front of the head to let air out when filling coolant? And Iíve deleted coolant globe and lower thermostat. I went with a inline thermostat at the head side. Is there any issues with doing that?

I think hassenwerk had something in his conversion thread about this. Maybe check that out.

My issue was a failed head gasket. Since I have installed head studs I have not had an issue.

I have the stock t-stat and used the MK4 coolant bottle and a MK3 radiator - the Ford overflow tank is removed from the system.

All works well.
