Unhappy ACCT conversion to MCCT

I have converted my original ACCTs to MCCTs. The procedure went fine until I had to re-install the coolant expansion tank. The problem is that the rear cylinder MCCT adjusting bolt gets in the way of the tank, and I can't fit the tank securing bolt. Has anybody else come up against this problem? I have secured the tank with a tie-wrap, but I'm not happy with that. Any ideas would be very welcome.

Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean that they are NOT all out to get you.

Shorten that bolt a bit. I've done this a few times and I've always been able to get that tank back on. Just shave a few threads off at a time and you'll be fine.

I recall another user voicing similiar issue. You could either install washer to help tank clear the bolt or heat tank slightly to create a dimple where the bolt rubs.

Just a note...we don't all have a spare $100 laying around...but we can probably come up with the ~$4.50 for this conversion.

If I could do it again ( originally) ....I agree. ! !but zero regrets with past money spent.

Too easy !

Thanks

Thanks for the advice.

I just went for a 20 mile test ride this afternoon. The engine is not ticking or rattling, and it drives fine, but now I have a minor oil leak from the rear MCCT. It must caused by gravity, because the front MCCT is bone dry. How annoying !
I think maybe the TOC solution is the way to go.
