Im buildning custom loop in my 1000d.
Just for esthetics, I want to place one rad before the pump, and one horizontally right after.
Is it possible (pic)? Im a noob, just want to check with the pros first :D

Assuming your pre-pump res is going to be how you fill the loop then as long as you manage to get all the air out of the post-pump res you should be fine. If you're pressurising that second res with your pump though, make sure it's sealed well!

The post-pump res will basically act like a big bit of tubing. It needs to be full - no air else it will get pushed around the loop, end up in the pre-pump res anyway. It might be tricky to bleed.

Should still work fine just ideally have to bleed it carefully as you fill the loop up.

Few tips of the case should sort that I bet. Can’t see any reason why it would have a negative impact not particularly any restriction.
