A little different flush method

After a few cascade flushs, which I did the normal way (pull lower radiator hose, block drains) I wanted to flush the soapy water out all at once. What I came up with was pulling the thermostat and leaving the upper radiator hose unattached. I found that a shop vac hose would slide over the hose
Then I ran a garden hose to degas bottle

And fired it up. I let it run and switched the hose between degas and upper radiator inlet with the heater on of course.

Once the water came out of the shop vac hose clear I knew all the old stuff was out. I then let it run for a while for good measure. Ect and eot stayed right around 100*. Now its time for some standard distilled flushs and then refill with ec1.
