Dodge Charger 2005-2010 H.O. System Installation
Coolant Reservoir
1
The hoses running to the factory coolant
reservoir must be removed in order to
install the new coolant reservoir. The
easiest and cleanest way to do this swap
is to empty the factory coolant reservoir,
and crimp the two hoses running to the
reservoir.
2
Press the factory clamps together and pull
the 3/4” and 3/8” factory coolant lines off
of the factory coolant reservoir.
3
The 3/4” line must be lengthened to reach
the outlet on the new reservoir. Install the
3/4” by 3/4” barbed fitting onto the 3/4”
factory coolant line. Slide the supplied
section of 3/4” hose onto the open end of
the barb. Secure the connections with the
provided #12 hose clamps.
4
Mount and tighten the 3/4” 90
°
brass
barbed fitting to the front of the new
reservoir. Repeat with the 3/8” 90
°
fitting
and install this onto the back of the
reservoir. Be sure the fittings point toward
the passenger’s side of the vehicle once
tightened. Use thread sealant to ensure a
proper seal on these connections.
5
Run the 3/4” coolant line under the
blower, and slide it onto the 3/4” barbed
fitting on the front of the new reservoir.
Secure the connection with a #12 hose
clamp.
