Two pipes?

Just going over my cooling system after installing the water pump and i get to my radiator.
There are two pipes coming out of the top of my radiator where the filler neck is. (should i have two?) Which one of these does my overflow pipe attach to. One comes out where the base of the rad cap sits and the other is a bit lower.

Re: Two pipes?

You should only have one large pipe that alows the hot water go into the top of the radiator, underneath the radiator filler neck is a small overflow outlet the lets the water escape into the overflow bottle. There could also be another 2 outlets down the side for auto trans cooling

Re: Two pipes?

that second tit on there is for decoration !
it actually serves no purpose because if it had a hole in it, all your anti freeze would leak out.
