Yet another Mickey-Mouse drawing from me. :) This is a bad diagram of how I'm thinking on routing my heater hoses when I install a coolant filter and a heater core shutoff valve on my 6.9l. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated...thanks!
Contaminants collected in the coolant filter, about one teaspoon in total. Note how the filter medium appears to be collapsing, and the amount of sludge on the filter medium itself. I could scrape it off with my finger, suggesting it definately was something circulating in the coolant.
