My dad is of that school of thought; he hates th eexpansion tanks and tries to get rid of them.

My opinion would to leave it alone but if you want to do it...

You would neet a new radiator that does not have a cap on the top then a new expansion tank and I beleive that there are two hoses that go from the radiator to the tank; one small one at the top that sends from the radiator to the expansion tank and another larger one at the bottom of the expansion tank that sends to the radiator.

Is there any reason why you would want to change it??? Does your radiator have issues???
