Likely my issue is related to other mods I have installed, so if the following scenario doesn't match anyone elses experience I'll have to try a new setup with only Ic2 and see what happens.
Anyway, it's really simple. I can make the coolant and put it into either buckets or universal fluid cells, but then I can't craft the 10k cell (with the bucket or whatever in the middle and surrounded by tin plates).
That is the right recipe right? It should work? No special machine for that last step right?
