Restore/restore plus process??

I am going to do my coolant flush soon. I already got 4 gallons of cat elc coolant. Where do I get the restore and restore plus and how exactly do I use them? I couldn't find these answers specifically when searching the forum. Thanks for any help

I ended up buying the Restore and Restore + from my local John Deere dealer. They were able to get me a single gallon of both. I don't have any International dealers or large truck shops close by. And I used about a half a gallon of both when I did mine, so I've got a half gallon of each left over. I'd almost be willing to work something out on them with you! lol

Is the Restore and Restore+ that big of a deal on the 08 and up? I know on the 6.0s its a must to help keep the oil cooler clean.

On the 08 the oil cooler is in front of the Rad isnt it? I know on mine i have
Intercooler
Oil cooler cooler stradiling the intercooler
Transmission cooler stradiling the intercooler
Then some other cooler between the Intercooler and Radiator. Fuel cooler?

Power steering and trans cooler are behind the cac.
Fuel cooler is mounted to the side of the cac (on the drivers side).
Oil cooler is water cooled and in the lifter valley.

Cooling sys flush is needed when the system is contaminated, usually with oil, or if you are switching coolant type.

wow really? I had hoped Ford wouldnt do this again after the 6.0 issues. I take it this oil cooler must be better then the 6.0 correct? I dont hear to much about oil cooler problems on the 6.4.
