Re: diesel leaking into radiator
The cavitation levels our trucks see are so low (really!) that it's EXCEPTIONALLY unlikely that you'd erode the bore boss in the block enough to get perforation in the lifetime of the truck.
Furthermore, any combustion gases going into the cooling system wouldn't produce a raw diesel trace, and would in fact push coolant out of the cooling system as the combustion pressures are a LOT higher than cooling system pressures.
