223 expansion tank

hey all,
i can't seem to find a after market bolt on for my coolant expansion tank.
i need the mercury 223,with hose connects on both sides.
any ideas?
mine is cracked and is not fixable.
i know they pretty much all leak,which makes it hard for me to understand not being able to find one.

Re: 223 expansion tank

I don't know how seriously yours is cracked but I have fixed a couple with cracks on the corners, thats where they usually crack. I cleaned the area around the crack
and soldered it up. Smooth the soldered area with a fine file and repaint. A reputable
radiator shop should be able to do the job if you feel you can't do it yourself.
If a rad shop won't do it they're not very good radiator people.

Hi,not sure why a 223 has a expantion tank? never seen one 60-64 big block.never seen the six but it seems a repair is in order and should be a simple fix. A brass tank a brass Brasing rod.
