    Hi Bill,

    That was some time ago. I had to think for a bit.

    There's really no problem with locating a remote heat ex and the longer line will actually help cool the hot line to it.
    I was probably remembering the old Saab 99 radiators that I worked on back in the eighties. The expansion tank cap was so low that the hose running to the cab heater core was actually higher than the opening of the radiator cap. this made for a troublesome time refilling the system after some maintenance chore. There was always a bubble of air that was very hard to purge in the heater ore. the coolant would not circulate over the bubble and the cabin would be cold. I live in Alaska, very important.
    That's pretty much the only thing I can think of as a problem. Just consider how bubbles might get trapped in high loops and places and you'l be fine I think.

    Happy new year,

    Hey Russ. I hope this finds you well. What do you mean by elevation problemsin (a post from 2011): "I moved my heat ex away from the original position to make it easier to work on the carburator. It has worked fine. I see no problem with a bit longer run as long as you pay attention to not getting high spots, bubbles or introducing elevation problems."
    I have planned to put the HX above the engine in the lazarette opening.
