I am heading out to Devils Lake, ND to go Ice fishing at the beginning of March and this trip makes me want to do a little bit of maintenance before I head out there. First thing on the list is a coolant flush and change. I have read to get a good ELC coolant (Cat ELC or IH). Where is a good place in central Wisconsin to get it from? I know I have to look for the EC-1 Rating on the bottle. I also plan on getting the different upper Radiator hose as well to go around the belt instead of through. Any body have a part number?
Any other things I should accomplish prior to trip? Anything that I should have with me?
Going to bring: Oil, fuel filter, CPS, check spare tire, and some other things.
Any Napa has or can get their hands on Zerex ELC or Peak Final Charge, both of which meets Cummins 14603, Cat EC-1 and Navistar (international) B-1...ELC requirements.
I usually keep a quart or so of ATF with me w/ 3/8th hose hose menders...just in case. I would also keep a gallon of 50/50 coolant with you just in case.
