Default Re: Radiator Cleaning and Mess

Flushed system with clear water and then put in some anti-freeze. Then drove car over 700 miles to the New England meet with no problems and no water lost.
I also saw the PVC flushers in the "Restorer". We're you pleased with their back flow ability? I had a plumber grab me the right parts, but haven't put them together. Any tips? Thanks.
20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Steve Jobs, and Bob Hope. Now we have no Cash, no Jobs, and no Hope...please don't let Kevin Bacon die!
