Default Ls1 cooling diagram/pictures

Hi Folks

Posted in newbie section but no response so far.

Please has anyone got a cooling diagram OR pictures of how Radiator/expansion tank plumbs into a lS1 system.

Drivelines from a 2002 WS6 TA but it's now in a 57 chevy.

Thanks in advance.

the battery tray is the coolant overflow tank and a tube goes from it to the top of the radiator, right under the radiator cap.

Do you have a LS1 radiator? I would love a picture myself, but don't have one.

The expansion tank connects to the radiator neck at the top nipple and the head vapor tubes (plumbed through the throttle body) connect to the nipple on the radiator neck below the expansion connection.

Unable to use WS6 radiator and overflow tank as damaged. Bought a cross flow rad off my local speed shop and managed to get coolant diagram faxed to me (remember faxes?) from a very helpful Lendrum & Hartman here in the UK. Found a overflow tank kicking about, which will do until I can afford a smarter one.

Thanks for the info everyone.
