it was easy a few tricks and I did my radiator while I was there just for PM
it makes the pump a cake walk

Thanks. Any suggestions on coolant from anybody. I did a complete flush a couple years ago during my oil cooler/egr delete process and I went with prestone heavy duty, seemed to work good but I can't find it now, so guess ill be doing another complete flush. Napa has a Zerex GO5, anybody used this? Is it best to go with the 50/50 or concentrate?

After a good flush, as per the Tech files, add concentrate or you'll end up on the weak side. I do a 60/40 ratio.

The pic below shows what I drained out of my radiator... doesn't look right to me?? Especially since what I put in was a bluish-purple color. This looks rust colored to me and when I pulled the top hose off that goes to the thermostat it was the same color inside and also looked dirty. Whats my problem here?? I probably don't want to know the answer but give it to me anyway. Lol!! Thanks

Yuk, looks like you need to do a complete chemical flush with Restore and Restore+.

Think I found the source of the "rust" colored coolant. Take a look at the pics. Don't know if y'all can tell but around the inner ring where the gasket sits pieces of that have chipped off !!!
