How do the dual coolant tanks work out, do they have enough surface area to keep the loaded engine cool ?  I like that idea.

so far so good.  This is a show engine and will not be placed under load.  Fuel burn and heat generation is low.

The tanks are actualy over kill for the intended purpose. The Bamfords dont put as much heat into the water jackets as a CS Lister does. Our Z4 is set up very much like Bobs and it ran all day at a show Saturday and barely got warm to the touch and it was 85 degrees out. I need to put a valve in the lines to keep it warmer.
