Some farms stores will have it, but I had to go to a Cummins big rig sales/service dealer to track it down. Where are you located?

Restore is necessary to remove the silicates, most people have said a flush will cause the oil cooler to clog. Sooner if not later. They also say the oil cooler backflush is not sufficient.

on a scale from 1 to 10 how many oil coolers are clogging up after a coolant flush?
i,m also ready to do the flush,but i,m scared that it will clog up my oil cooler.

p.s perfect delta,s at the moment,...ect 188 - eot 191 @ 65mph.

like the OP i would like to change to ELC cat1 coolant,but not at the cost of a new oil cooler.

You never know. You might end up having to replace it anyhow and do the flush. Whe
