If you never want to have to do that again, get one of these.

If your delta is with in specs, there is no need to change the oil cooler. When they speak of flushing the coolant and switching to a ELC CAT EC-1 rated, then your gonna need to use Restore cleaner. The Ford Gold coolant has silicate in it, the ELC CAT EC-1 coolant is silicate free and won't mix well with the silicate residue left in the system from the Ford Gold. The Restore coolant cleaner is a chemical that removes the leftover silicate from the Ford Gold.

3rd paragraph down explains this also.
