Re: in line coolant filter
You should being distilled water from the drug/grocery store. Better if Deionized water.
Well water has alot of iron and other minerals in it to cause rapid corrosion.
There is always going to be some sediment in the bottom of the radiator and in the banks of the block. Only way to remove 100% is to cook/hot tank the block and hot dip the radiator. You can get most of it out by removing the rad and having it clean. The block, you can remove the thermostat and housing and the drain plugs, good luck with those, and shove a city water garden hose into the manifold and crank the water on and leave run for several minutes. Then refill with distilled/deionized water and antifreeze.
JC Whitney used to sell those filters, but haven't seen those in ages. You can visit your local marine store and buy a zinc anode and replace the radiator drain petcock with the anode. The zinc is sacrificial and will prevent alum from corroding through electrolysis.
