Can any of you (Aussies) tell me the exact capacity of the cooling system in my 1921 Canadian built T with the extra large top tank (Colonial) radiator?
I've always GUESSED it at about 15 liters.
My thanks in advance.
Rob, I am not aware of extra capacity radiators for later cars. The brass radiators often had extended top tanks. The shelled type radiators had larger top tanks as manufactured.
Perhaps you have something which has been modified.
Allan from down under.
Could you tell me what the capacity is for the whole (stock) system, please?
I was thinking the same as Allan. I have seen a lot of pre. 1917 Brass Colonial radiators but no later Black steel shell radiators with the typical colonial top tanks.

Allan & John,
Gents, I had myself all confused because the only "other" radiator I can compare mine too is the remains of an old brass one I have here.
Sorry about that. But can anyone tell me the exact capacity of the cooling system for my low radiator car please?
All I can find in specs is, 1908/1927 cooling cap is 14 quarts.
I actually measured my cars a few years ago and the measurements are still on the blackboard in the garage.
Capacity of a brass radiator standard ( Brassworks) is 10 litres,
The Colonial ones vary, I have two which are different but they hold about 4 litres extra.
Here are two brass ones
This appears to have been added to a standard radiator.
This one is one piece with made in Canada markings
