    Not, implying You. You had already stated the DPO did it. Now you need to plug them back in and let engine run till the fans cycle ON and OFF once to verify the Otterstat is still Good.

    Following your pictures I think I found those otterstat wires I've been looking for.

    Tell me, does this look right to you?
    Glad I could help out! And man, that's some A+ Previous Owner Syndrome, lol...

    Something else you can do with the otterstat once you verify that it works is put an industrial-grade zip tie around it to make sure it doesn't shake loose while you're going down the highway. You can kind of see mine in the pic where it goes between the plugs.

    Hey gang! It's been a while since I've updated my progress on getting the car back on the road. So far so good. I've been out of town for several months now and haven't been able to work on the car.

    Now I'm back, cleaned my coolant lines, got them reconnected, and even got the block plugs out with extreme ease!

    Now is the time to fill the car back up with coolant. I'm trying to clean out the block the best I can, by sticking the garden hose in the back hose, to get all the loose debris and junk out.

    My question is which way does the coolant flow? From the driver's side, to the radiator, then back towards the engine on the passenger side? Or vise versa?

    And about how much coolant does it take to fill the system?

    Thanks all, and hopefully by tomorrow I'll be completely finished with things, for now.

    Completely dry almost 4 gallons. If you can't drain every drop out, closer to 3 1/2 Gallons.

    Also the heater core lines donít flush out naturally either. Technically, you would need to disconnect the lines where they attach to the engine. Then connect extension hoses to the lines too clear them out. Most people donít go to the trouble to do this and just let the new coolant dilute the 1-2 quarts that might be left in the system.
