    rad cap presure help

    2.1 pinto, twin 48's, grp1 head etc with a Volvo 740 rad & expansion tank, I need to get a new cap but not sure which pressure to get as there is a choice of 14psi & 22psi any ideas on which is best suited.

    I ran that setup with a Ford rad at one time and used a 13 cap. Worked fine but I'm not sure what modern thinking is with Pinto's.

    Yup, I'm running 13lbs on my mildy tuned Pinto . Expansion tank is a good idea as otherwise you need to let the rad puke what it doesn't want to find it's own level.
