Here you go
You will need 4 gal of concentrate, I recommend the Fleetrite ELC , or any coolant that meets the stringent EC=1 rating. You won't find this at Auto Zone!! Any International dealer will have the Fleetrite on the shelf. You want the concentrate, not the 50/50 pre mix.
You will also need 22-24 gal jugs of distilled water. Ask the store manager for a price break!!
Dump degas bottle via pet**** on bott of rad. Fill with tap water. Turn heater on high and drive until hot air comes out of the vents, stop dump and refill with tap water, drive/dump. Do this until the water coming out is 100% clear, usually 6-8 times.
Once water is clear you know you have 100% tap water in system. Now dump and refill with distilled water, should take 4-5 gal. Drive/dump, drive /dump , each time refilling with distilled water. After doing this 4 times you have a 98.9% ratio, but I like one more for 100%, this will leave you with 100% distilled water. On the last dump refill with 4 gal of concentrate. It may not take it all, just top off with remainder of concentrate or distilled water in the following days as the air burps out. This is also a good time to add a coolant filter and to change the upper rad hose to a dual alt set up that goes over the fan belt and not through it. If you have any ? just PM me.
