I'm wondering if anybody has used a coolant filter? They are about $50, but maybe I need it after finding buildup in my engine.

I was upgrading the intake manifold and carb. When I pulled it off I found a decent amount of building in the water ports, and also evidence somebody put a leak-stop in it. Also found plenty of mineral buildup and a chunk of leak-fix stuff in the radiator.

So I figured on replacing the radiator and fllushing the coolant maybe to help clean out the engine. But is that just going to wash junk into a new radiator?

Anything I can do to clean before installing the new manifold?

I suggest to backflush the heater core and flush the engine alot with a good product.Run it for a couple of days and reflush it.

I found somebody that said spray it out with a water hose with the radiator disconnected at the top and bottom. Then I'd use flush after that a couple times. That sounds alright doesn't it?
