    Looks like sandy gold! LOL

    Sand casting out of my oil cooler. Oil got hot (50 degrees at one point) but lucky I was running the good stuff. I made my own back flush kit to get it cleaned out with the help of a coolant gun and 110psi of air.

    Ran a couple of days with CRC Salt terminator and straight water. Flushed it and back flushed the cooler again and got out a little more. But nothing like what the bucket has LOL.

    This time I’m trying out Amsoil heavy duty coolant. I had The extended life green with wix cool additive. We will see

    Any update to this? How is the cooler holding up after the backflush? I did some pretty extensive backflushes this summer that didn't last, so I ended up doing a cooler replacement this fall.
