Ken, there is a product called Evans Coolant. It is water free. Boiling point is something very high, like 340F and freeze protection down to -40F. It is intended to be a permanent coolant and never needs changing. Since it contains no water, better for the cooling system as it will not cause rust. Jay Leno uses it in many of his vintage vehicles and is very happy with it. It costs about $40 per gallon. The system must be purged of all water before installing the Evans. Thought you might be interested.
JW - I've heard of it, and thought about it. I think I'm cleaning up 83 years of neglect. Once I have it all dialed in, I'll probably run 70/30 distilled water/anti-freeze. If I see the rust returning, I'll jump to the Evans. I want to get the cooling system 100% dialed in before I switch to something like Evans.
Wow, that's a good amount of junk the filter picked up. You have me wanting to run some Evaporust in the future.
Kevin - I got the idea from the AACA forum, and this is the 3rd or 4th time I've cleaned it out. I'm collecting quite a bit of crud out of the block! I also flushed the block with Evaporust using a pump and a bucket heater before I started this process!
