I agree with everything except this statement.  :qtip:
"I should have completely drained the coolant from the block"
Please explain why?
I think You could cause more issues having the cooling system completely exposed.
I could see draining the cooling system and refilling with fresh.

Over time the water and ethylene glycol will separate. And any air space will be get exposed to water vapor and moisture.. promoting rust!!
