I made a little gizmo consisting of a 6", 1/2" pipe nipple, a gate valve and a pipe thread to hose thread adaptor. The 1/2" pipe fits inside the heater hoses to flush/back flush the system. Best to drain the block via the plug above the starter motor . Also I remove the T-stat. You can also do a citric acid flush, do a search, should be lots of info about that.
