jasongael is on a distinguished road
so... story continues.. I got a tapered brass nozzle and shut off valve for my garden hose, and I clamped off the return hose (bypass), I put the nozzle into the crossover hose and connected the thermostat housing to a hose emptying into a bottle. But, i couldn't blast through that direction. So, I reversed it, putting the bottle on the crossover, and the nozzle into the thermostat housing and was able to blast it out. Then, I reversed it again, and was able to get flow. Once I flushed it a while, I put everything back together the correct way except I left the thermostat out, and started her up. She ran well and kept a good temp. A steady stream of water came out the exhaust, but not enough. Not even a steady pouring. So, I think maybe it got reblocked, and I'll need to flush it thoroughly and try again. I just don't want to use acid if I don't have to yet. I'll keep you posted! And thanks again!
