How to Install Ve-Labs Products:
When installing the new Rad Cap it is best to remove the original radiator cap when the engine is cold to avoid getting burned with hot coolant. There are two styles of sacrificial anode that attach to the bottom of the cap. The one with the spring on the end of it can be adjusted by pulling apart or pushing together the spring to ensure the anode is sitting in coolant. The other style has a chain and needs no adjustment. Make sure the cap is securely tightened. Occasionally the cap should be removed to inspect the anode as it will disintegrate over time, which is normal as it is absorbing the electrolysis instead of the aluminum components in the cooling system.
Rad Cap Custom Covers
Simply push the cover over the Rad Cap and it fits snugly. There is no need for any adhesives.
Coolant Filter and Inspection System
You must install the coolant filter in the inlet hose which flows coolant into the heater. The inlet hose is the hose that comes from the intake manifold or the side of the engine block (If your vehicle has a heater valve it would be that hose). The return hose is the hose that goes to the water pump or to the radiator. Once you have determined what hose is the inlet you need to cut out a section of the hose the same length of the filter. If the hose you cut is 3/4 inch you need to use the hose adaptor that is supplied with the kit. If the hose is 5/8 inch you will need to remove the adapters. There is a sticker on one end of the filter that says “inlet”; the coolant comes from the engine into the inlet of the filter and out to the heater. Slide the hose clamps onto the end of the hose and push the filter into the hose. Tighten the hose clamps. Start the vehicle and let the filter fill with coolant and let it warm up. Pressure-check the system to ensure there are no leaks (On rare occasions the filter will leak at the rubber seal between the glass and the chrome end cap and if this happens grab the chrome end caps and twist to tighten. This will stop the leak). If the vehicle has duel heaters do not install the filter as it will not allow enough coolant for both heaters to work properly.
This can be attached to either the heater core or radiator. When attaching it to the heater core use the red clip that is supplied in the package and attach it to the red wire. Then connect the clip on to the heater pipe that sticks out of the firewall into the engine compartment in between the firewall and the hose and hose clamp. The black wire needs to be attached to a good ground. Mount the metal housing securely.
Smart Ground Wire
This can be attached to either the heater core or the radiator. When attaching to the radiator attach the red wire to the radiator’s support channel (all radiators have support channels that are attached to either the top and bottom or the sides depending on the style of the radiator). Most support channels already have holes in them so securely attach the red wire to an existing hole with a screw. The black wire needs to be attached to a good ground.
