Very glad I changed to the re-routed hose, as I have had to change the belt twice since doing the flush, nice not to break coolant system open.
Yeah, swapping out to the hose that goes around the belt is much nicer, I agree.

Finished changing mine today. The G05 I took out looked as good as new. I wanted to get the ELC in there, so I picked up 6 gal. of Delo full strength. 6 gals from Distributor was cheaper than 4 gals in the Auto Parts houses. Couldn't find Delo.
Cat was $108.00 for 4 gals and they didn't stock it in full strength.

Thanks for these instructions!

Great directions... water pump, hoses, thermostat, belt, and Zerex HD ELC all done.

Does anyone know how to get in contact with Mr. Gooch? I would like to do a video how to using his method, but as it is the Gooch method I would like his permission, per common courtesy policy.

NAPA auto parts... I believe it's just an early 99 hose, have no idea why they changed the design.

They were used on the rigs with duel alternators, like ambulances.

Ford part number: F81Z-8260-CA

NAPA Auto parts:

Upper hose through the Belt....(not recommended).... 9175 (standard single alt)
Upper around the Belt.....(recommended)................. 9066 (dual alt)
Lower hose.............................................. ........... 9067

Chevron Delo ELC

Stewart - You posted a link to Chevron to find the Chevron Delo ELC. I am in Houston and need to get some to perform Gooch's flush.

I'm not sure what page # or post the link was on.

If anyone knows where I can get the Chevron Delo ELC in Houston I would appreciate it.

Hi sneltyr, I bought some in Houston earlier this year. Bought from a distributor, Sun Coast, near the east loop. I am not in town and don't have access to numbers, but I googled Delo ELC in Houston, and started calling.
I had to buy a case of six, about 120 dollars. Just be sure they get the concentrate,the guy brought out the 50/50 first. They are set up for retail, but it is not a store front type of place. A large warehouse with an office.
Good luck.

Go to NAPA and get fleet charge that is not 50/50. Much easier to find.

I am confused. I would like to know the name of a specific SCA that I can buy at Napa or anywhere to use in my 1988 F250 7.3 IDI and what the specifications are. I have read and read. I still don't remember seeing this information.

Thanks in advance.

Bill

Paul,
Where in Anchorage did you find the Delo Elc? I'm in the Valley and I'm having a hell of a time.

Delo ELC

Jeff,
I sent you a PM. Got if from a bulk Chevron business down on the Port in Anchorage. Just past the homeland security guard station about 1-block on the right hand side. I don't recall the business name...
