Lol, that G8tor's country, I'm in Ohio.
Lol. Btw I am a huge bengals fan. Like probably one of the very few die hard fans this far south. And also I worked on getting those torx screws loose today so I got that covered. Will work on the block plugs tomorrow. They were definitely a pain in the neck but I was ready for them.

@sparky I’m also on a 14 inch lift on 40’s so that’s makes working on the top side that much more of a pain, but atleast working from the bottom is easier. Lol

Use a punch on those tight bolts to jar them a little before trying to loosen them, the threads will 'stick' in the aluminum with time. Be sure to choose a punch that either will fit into the head of the screw or one that completely covers the head ...dont want to damage the head of the screw here.

Need to be 'square' to the screw head and give a 'sharp' whack with a small hammer ...the point is to jar the threads ...not do any damage.

This method will usually make tight screws back out easily, ...dont forget a little penetrating oil. Free All, or PB Blaster ...WD40 will not do as good.

In my defense, I was unsupervised

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

If you are asking if it needs to be diluted before you pour it in than the answer is no. Once you are finished flushing, haved drained the system down completely and ready for the final fill, you can pour the coolant straight into the degas bottle. I usually pour in a gallon of coolant, a gallon of distilled water, then two gallons of coolant and top it off with distilled. In Florida you really do not need a full 50-50 mix. The system holds about 7 gallons, so if you want to be strict with the 50-50 mix, use 3.5 gallons of ELC. You do not need to follow the routine I use, the water and coolant will be mixed up soon enough. That's just the way I like to do it.

I am in the process of finding a 6.0 to buy. I have been reading TONS of threads to better acquaint myself with the common problems on these trucks. I am going to tack on an additional thank you to the great members of this forum. I'm also a member of "TheSamba.com" for everything old and Aircooled. Same level of camaraderie and knowledge that really helps keeps cars on the road.

Thanks guys and best of luck with your trip, @Dsgripworks ! Happy trails.
