BEC cooling diagram?

Has anyone got a simple cooling diagram for a BEC using an R1 5VY engine in a kit car? The thermostat and housing is removed.

Mine has 2 rads....1 either side in side pods but the rads dont have caps on. Theres a pressure cap on the expansion tank though

The reason i ask....... ive got a set up as the below picture. Is the layout correct? I ask as on my personal car, when i rev the engine the coolant level doesnt move, yet when i rev the kit car, the header tank gets an influx of fluid. Im doubting if its routed right?

Also, I cant work out what to do with the missing pieces that come from the T section that joins the top of the header tank, and goes to the water pump.....the third part which isnt drawn seems to go to the back of the engine but i cant find a drawing to explain where it goes?

Any pointers?

Hard to tell from that technical drawing

But I would put the small pipe from rad to that T piece,then the bottom pipe out of header tank needs to be joined into the pipe going into water pump
