When cool, fill the radiator to the top, and then fill plastic reservoir about 1/2 way, if it does not have a mark on it for full. Fill needs to be the 50/50 antifreeze mixture.

The tube from radiator to the reservoir needs to be vacuum tight, so when engine cools, it sucks the fluid from reservoir and keeps system full.
