To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Flushing out block

Recommended Posts

I've got an engine that is full of 35 year old rusty water/coolant and I'm looking to flush clean while still intact in the car but I don't want to run it thru my new water pump and intake if possible.

I've fabricated a couple fittings for a hose connections at the front (see arrows on drawing) and was thinking of either, attaching the intake  or fabbing up some fittings for the heads.

With this setup I feel that I could power flush with an air pressure/water combo and maybe even use a pump to circulate a rust removal  product throughout the block to loosen the crap up further.

Does anybody see a problem or any issues with this contraption? Should this work?  I'm sure I wont get all of the crap out but I feel any little bit would help.
