De-Gas Tank Question

I noticed one fellow put a inline filter on the hose that goes from the top of the radiator to the de-gas tank , I did this using a clear Fram fuel filter and over a few days time noticed it collecting debris! so it somewhat works ...
But what about the hose that comes off the intake manifold back to the tank ?? does this one actually FLOW coolant back to the tank ? , it is the EGR Coolant De-Airation Port I am talking about ...since coolant Flows thru the manifold that is tapped into by this port ? I'm thinking it Should ? or is it also an "overflow " type setup ??
The reason I am asking is all I can find states > this port is the EGR Deareation Port -this port and hose must not be obstucted to De-gas system or EGR Coolant Filter failure can occur
I did the Egr delete so what would it hurt by putting in a filter system off this port ? I could run this hose to a remote spin on coolant filter / returning back to tank .... if it will work ??
If no one replies .......guess I will just have to start truck and pull hose off de-gas tank and see what happens ?? LOL

That line was the coolant flow through your egr cooler. The coolant comes out of the oil cooler, goes through the EGR cooler, then into the intake manifold. Some of that coolant is sent back to the degas bottle via the rubber hose, while the rest goes to the front cover of the engine. (all that is according to the 6.0 Bible)
I would think that if you introduced some sort of obstruction (say a plugged filter) you could cause the oil cooler to overheat by blocking the coolant flow.

Yea , but I my still try and put in a filter of some sort or at least tee into this so if it does plug it will still circulate ... pulled hose off when I got home last night and it does have PLENTY of Flow !

I'm going to run one of the Oberg style filters , check and clean it every time I do oil changes , due to its design it should mount easily behind alternator and have plenty of room to service it !

Oberg Oil Filters

I would make sure to check the oil temperature to make sure the cooler gets lots coolant.

If your going to drop that kind of coin (for the oberg), why no get the dieselsite coolant filtration?

I have used the Oberg on my race engines before and have one already , I also have several screens of different microns ...they have a very low pressure drop and good surface filter area...plus you clean the screens and replace , never need to buy another filter element unless it gets damaged ...I will clean it every time I do an oil change so clogging up should not be a problem , if it gets that much trash in there ?? something is seriously wrong anyways ?

ps..looking at where the hose nipple on the manifold is , it looks to just tap into the water port that returns to the pump ?? it does not apper that this hose would carry ALL the Coolant that originally would flow thru the EGR system ? anyone care to clarify my idea on this ....just does not make sense you need alot of coolant flow thru the Oil Cooler ,to the EGR Cooler then return to tank by such a small hose , like it is described as ...EGR Daereation port , I believe this was designed to scavenge some of the coolants trapped air /steam ?? and circulate it out of the system and back to De-gas tank ??
Right or Completely wrong ??

I already hit on that.

True, but if the return line plugged going to the degas it would still circulate the full amount of coolant within the system .. instead of bleeding some to the tank .....and should not hinder the cooling of the oil cooler ? that is what I'm getting at ..
