    That's what happens when you don't read the warning label.

    Default Coolant change and filter

    I thought my antifreeze/coolant was clean as it always appeared clear and green(think it was ethylene glycol) in the surge tank.

    Off roading last week and put my A3 through some vigorous hill climbing and descending. Brought it into my shop for a chassis lube.

    Checking the fluid levels I opened the surge tank cap to find a stinky black mess. I guess the rigorous driving stirred up some hidden sludge from within the cooling system as I have inspected the reservoir numerous times.

    Drained the black antifreeze into 5 gallon buckets thru the petcock. Removed lower hose and began to flush into buckets for proper disposal. Removed thermostat housing and thermostat and flushed. Removed hose to heater core and flushed. Removed the surge tank and flushed it and noticed the small return port from the top small hose from the radiator coming into the tank was blocked. I cleared it using a small drill bit.

    New thermostat and gasket(NAPA) and refilled with +/- 30 qts of Peak FleetCharge SCA precharged antifreeze. Drove to operating temps and opened surge cap to find my new antifreeze was still dirty. Decided it's time for a coolant filter. Bought NAPA #24019 filter base and #24079 coolant filter. As I began to drain the coolant to do the install I noticed the lower radiator hose was cracked. NAPA was no help so I'm hoping Big Mike will be available tomorrow as his page shows it in stock and he's about an hour from me.

    I am hoping that someone might chime in with the plumbing for my coolant filter on my M35A3 Cat 3116 with cab heater. I removed the 1/2" unused port plug(3/8" drive) from the thermostat housing and plumbed that to the inlet side of my filter. For the return from the filter I put a tee into the hose coming from the heater core that runs to the return at the water pump. I am a bit confused as the heater core shutoff is on the same return hose. That would mean that the cable operated shut off valve would block the return of coolant from the heater core and not block the flow to the heater core. This just seems a bit odd to me. I'll probably put another valve to block the flow of coolant the the core if, in fact, I am not confused as to the flow of coolant to and from the heater.

    Here are some pics and I would appreciate any/all advice on the plumbing route I have chosen.

    Love my truck and the SS site.

    God Bless America!

    DSCF2154.jpg I have done nothing this whole week, and the weather next week looks like more of the same. I need to do a front brake and bearing check, then paint the Deuce and the M105A2, but I don't think the weather will be warm enough until April. This has been a real cold and wet winter.

    I don't have enough property for alot of trucks yet. One 40' x204' lot with 2 garages on it 40 x 70 and a 16 x 26 take up the majority of the room. At the house it is about an acre all hillsides with 2 natural springs. The wheelhorse tractor gets stuck mowing the grass with chains on it.

    I plumbed my new spin on fuel filter wrong, I showed how to do it properly since I screwed it up the first time.

    If you add two fuel gauges, one before the filter and one after you can tell when to change out the filter. According to manufactures specs if you have more then a 3 PSI differential it is time to replace the filter. That is what I did with mine. Now at a glance I can tell when it is time to change out my filters. No guess work and no more replacing good filters. If you do go this way be sure you buy two identical gauges. I bought some "No Shock" glycerin filled gauges. Extremely accurate.

    I have a good one, I just had to delete it until I get some new fittings since I had to re-plumb it.

    Rusty,
    Did you mount those two gauge in the engine bay, or did you plumb them into the cab?
    Thanks,
    John
