coolant filling...

Question guys....i just replaced the radiator in my 08 F250 (wishing i would have read about that issue before purchasing the truck but oh well) ... i still have to take it in to have the water pump and t-stat replaced. to save money on coolant i plan on just putting water in it to get it up to the shop since he has to drain it anyway...to do this can i just fill the radiator at the top hose or do i actually have to get the rad vac tool and fill it that way??

please help

thanks all

Just fill it through the degas bottle. Run it for a bit and just keep adding accordingly. Also I would probably use distilled water as opposed to tap water. This is how I did it a couple times now.
