When I did my flush, after the initial flush with a hose while the truck was running for 30 minutes, I filled it with distilled water every morning, drove it to work and back and opened the radiator drain with the nose pointed downhill at night. I did that for a week before converting

If I were you I would keep flushing until it is almost clear. You are only about half way there at 16 gallons. The system holds 7 I believe.
