You did fail to run it up to temp before adding the AF but it appears the solution got everywhere it needed to for a standard raw water cooled motor.

Thanks. I don't see how running it up to temp will help distribution of fluid. The cold RV fluid will eventually close the t-stat. Also, I had the t-stat housing off and there is a bypass hole which dumps in intake and exhaust manifolds. The RV fluids that gushed out when I pulled the temp sending unit kind of proves this theory.

I'll take your advice and dream of spring
