Our surge tanks provide will last and we have them for all the major brands such as Ford, Freightliner, Peterbilt, and many others. Surge tanks, sometimes also known as expansion tanks, play a key part in the cooling system for your truck.
51-F5HT-8A080-HA Ford Surge Tank
One of our most popular surge tanks is the 51-F5HT-8A080-HA, this tank is for the Ford F-650. This aluminum fabricated surge tank is durable and designed to be an exact fit. All of our surge tanks are pressure tested for quality and have no loss of capacity.
Also, make sure to check all your hoses and clamps after you install a new surge tank. A leak in one of those could cause some serious damage. Of course, not all of our surge tanks are made from aluminum. For example, our Western Star Expansion Tank 51-WST is made from durable sheet metal. This tank is a direct fit for your Western Star engine and is made from 11 gauge sheet steel from Michigan.
In Addition, our Kenworth Surge Tank is a steel fabricated tank as well. No matter if it is steel or aluminum our surge and expansion tanks will stand the test of time. You cannot afford to have your truck down for maintenance for extended periods of time.
