Coolant - SCA's. i forget what it stands for, silicate something. its reduces cavitation. you just want a diesel coolant that is EC-1 rated. i used CAT ELC EC-1 from the local CAT dealer. bit more pricey but not too bad. drain the radiator, pull the two pipe plugs, one by the oil filter and the other by the starter somewhere, (get repalcements since they are cheap), fill with distilled water (distilled for flush is my preference, some use tap, if you dont have good quality tap dont use it), run the truck til the t-stat opens. then drain again, then fill with your 50/50 coolant or if you make a 50/50 mix only use distilled water. run the truck till the stat opens, top off.
