Default blowing water out

My 33 had started blowing water out the overflow,the faster I went ,the more water went out.
Today I bit the bullit and pulled the radiator and took the top tank off,found this,looks like thats my problem,funny thing ,it never got hot.

Hey Lawrei, it looks like a bees nest honey comb, I'm sure you don't worry about freeze up but in my neck of the globe we use Anti Feeeze year around and it keeps it from rusting. Walt

I've always wondered if dropping a magnet in the radiator tank would collect the rust particles.Of course it would have to be fished out from time to time and cleaned.

Walt, I put the coolant in the other month and that showed up the problem,coolant will go back in.I put the coolant in because we had COLD weather this winter,it got down to 8 deg C
And the magnet idea looks a good one,I will look at that also.
I,m sticking it back together today.

Any opinion on using these filters? Other than cost and appearance.

How is the 'junk' held in the filter after shutdown?....

It's hard to see, but it looks like there is a double cone. The inner one has an aperture that allows the junk thru and traps it between the 2 cones.
