Just be aware that with the wartime rad., the cap is supposed to open and dump pressure at 3.5psi. (Ford did make the seams of soldered joints bigger during the war)
Having said that, I have done (and posted on here) exactly this and I run a 4 pound cap. So far no problems.
Aside from the difficulty of finding an original, functioning cap, the advantage here is the ease of access to checking and top up, which is a pig with the original.
Well done Rick!
