I am currently working on the brake system, as you saw on instagram. I've got a whole list of things to do on the car that are a higher priority. Since my current radiator is fine, it probably won't get replaced with this new one for a while. But of course I had to get in on the GB bc I know how hard parts are to get for these cars!

Want to remind everyone that the radiator cap is a Type1(not to be confused with our engines) and the tabs look very similar but may be very tight. However, these were common I think on civics and newer hondas so availability is higher and for after market as well.

Will the OEM caps work on these aluminum radiators?

It doesn't seem these radiators were designed for use with our OEM caps.

I am surprised to hear that and hope that Ben provides a little more information as to the differences and why it was determined to use a different type. I don't know anything about radiator caps, but a quick google search shows there may be as many as 4 different kinds (Type 1 or 2 and Type A or B). Some caps are for a recovery system (which Legends have with the overflow reservoir), and some are not.

I chose to go with the more common Honda style Type 1/ Type A. Ours are becoming harder to find at least up by me and I don't like that there is no sure way to "seal" versus the spring on the newer style.

Sorry for the trouble, didn't think people would want to reuse their radiator caps

But now you know if you want a performance one (1.3bar)

My opinion is that as long as the cap these radiators were designed to use are readily available (it sounds like they are) and they function the same way the OEM ones function (allow coolant to travel to the overflow reservoir if needed), then there is no problem.

Yes, they are designed for a overflow system. Always had better luck with these style caps on all types of radiators which is why I chose them.

But you guys can always splurge on a 1.3 bar custom one. I have seen some pretty super high quality ones...like cnc billet even. I will probably go that direction in the future.

YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE PLASTIC DRAIN COCK/PLUG ON THE RADIATORS WITH A 1/4 NPT SUCH AS THE DORMAN 61106 MODEL!!!!

OTHERWISE THE PLASTIC ONE, DUE TO NOT BEING CORRECT THREAD SIZE, MAY COME LOSE AND LEAK COOLANT RAPIDLY
