Hey -V- I would fix that seepage in you rise...I had some in 2010 which I fix in 2011. You'll most likely will see some pitting in the riser/exhaust manifold union...just suggestion...for your clean motor...

My bucket method without putting a hole in a perfectly good bucket. After temp is reached Ty and I just poured in 5-1/2 gallons of antifreeze without shutting anything down. You gotta be fast!

The 5 gallon water bucket demo!

Fake a lake works good for me on my old tristar
, we have good pressure here, But I used the 5 gallon bucket yesterday to suck antifreeze into the old girl. It sucked up almost
20 liters or 5 gallons i think ,
how much do you guys suck into your engine?

I run 5 gallons... takes about that much to get a good flow out the exhaust. "OLD TRISTAR" them could be fightin' words here...

I never do. You just end up losing antifreeze.
