I just want to add a little emphasis to Clipper47's comments about the distribution tube. It's purpose is to direct cool water flow, and most importantly to the hotest part of the engine, the exhaust valve seats. If it becomes filled with sludge and crap, a possible result is a cracked block, often between the exhaust valve seat and the cylinder. By all means despite the pain, remove it and clean or replace it.
