Normal security for a castle head nut is a cotter pin. Just wondering....
    It won't stop the studs from loosening Roger just the nuts, I just like the look really, the studs are loctited in with blue loctite, they won't ever come out !!!

    Not a big deal Steve, but properly installed safety wire would keep the studs from loosening, but technically safety wire would not be allowed on a castle head nut in safety service (aircraft fasteners, military engines, even professional racing, etc) because the hole through the bolt and the slots of the nut create a shear plane on both sides that tends to cut the wire if it loosens. Not saying that it's wrong for your service, but it wouldn't pass QA/QC on a military application. A cotter pin would be used on a castle head, but I think it looks trick, too.

    Had another thought while riding the tractor/mower for what I hope is our last mowing of the season... If you want to make it more "authentic" you might consider abandoning the hole through the stud and the castle headed nuts, and invest in a jig to drill across the corner of a polished hex nut for the safety wire. Here's the first that popped up on EvilBay - Safety Wire Pliers Guide Block Universal Nut Jig | eBay You could then wire the nuts such that the wire pulls to tighten, not more than three together, and with the twist on the wire between 6-10 twists per inch. With that, Bob's Your Uncle....... or Auntie

    I like the milling on the studs and the castle nuts! But, how the heck did you get the safety wire wound that perfect!?

    Not much in the way of progress as still straightening out the cab, it's getting there though
    need to have a break from it now and again so looked for something to make, I needed a coolant over flow bottle, yeah I know I could of bought one but I wanted something different So I found a bit of 80mm thick walled tube and cut it into 2 pieces, then onto the lathe to lose some weight and get it down to 1/16" wall, the first piece was turned on the outside and the 2nd piece was bored out till one slid nicely into the














    Next some 2.5" holes were bored and some of the holes elongated.












    A top was turned up and next I turned a bung for the top, this was welded on and blended & fettled to become one piece. Then a base was turned up and it was all ready for welding.










    Here are its all welded together and the welds smoothed out.








    I found found a neat little drain valve from a Hawker Hunter aircraft so welded in a bung in the base and threaded it to suit.










    I welded a tab on and as the drain valve was drilled for wire locking I wire locked it to the tab.








    The top was tapped for a 3/8" brass pipe fitting which has a bit of copper pipe going up to the rad cap, I added a mounting bracket and here's the finished tank ready to be vapour blasted.

    Continually amazed at your creativity and approach, Mr Lang! Not sure how you thought of the two layered container, but it ROCKS! Thanks for taking time to post.

    The over flow bottle looks great! Your talents keep us all coming back for more. Thank you for sharing.
    Shouldn't it have a vent as well?
