Default radiator replacement

My friend and I just finished replacing my radiator with a salvaged one due to a cracked radiator tank. It went well, and it is taking the coolant just fine, but I just want to know what I should be looking for, if anything for signs of future problems. I am constantly watching the coolant level, and it has been bubbling up, and I've been topping off.
Also, how much coolant does this tank hold? I have been doing the 50-50 water coolant, and Its been about 1.5 gallons of the mixture. How much more does it hold?
Thanks, happy holidays

Default RE: radiator replacement

After filling it and running it will usually burp twice and then you will need to top it up.
You might want to take it for a 6 mile trip then finish topping it off.

Just check all connections for leakage.
