Dear members,
On my Silver Cloud 3.
Is it a good idea to put a steam valve 7psi under the radiator cap? or not.
Thanks you
Francois

Francois, the steam valve is under the plate held by a ring of bolts next to the radiator filler cap, that is why the cap has no pressure controlling as on other makes of cars. As you say, system pressure is 7lbs/0.6 bar. If in Europe I would recommend 50% water and antifreeze/inhibitor mix.

Thank you Gordon,
It is not a good idea.
My question was stupid.
