    I don't know if it has ever been done before, but the placement of the reservoir is the same as the coolant reservoir. It is at the highest point of that particular system so that any air trapped within can rise up to escape the fluid and not cause problems. Placing the reservoir lower would only cause inefficient flow for releasing any trapped air.

    It's been done, and I'm about to do it. Jason Drew (@jdxnc ) has had his there for a while.

    Yup, mines been in that location for a few years now and the pump relocated to the A/C pump location. Zero issues, the pump is even mounted upside down.
