My first start is always with plain old water.....

just saying.



Hey e,

Yes.. this is a great tip.  :thumbs:

I did this with my 22R head job.  I found all kinds of "particles" (pieces of gasket material, RTV, other stuff) when I drained it.

I did NOT use just water on my recent rebuild, and ended up with slimy, sticky ethylene glycol running up my arm as I had to fix a leak at the little hoses under the IAC valve.  :shake_head:

Gnarls.  :gap:

1986 XtraCab SR5 22RE 5speed W56B, ~26,000 MI after break-in, DIM (Did It Myself) rebuilt engine - .020" over, engnbldr RV head, OS valves, 261C cam, DT Header.
