Have heating problems with my 289 so used a radiator flush and it broke loose some residue from inside my engine and radiator. Some of the residue as I can see is stuck in my radiator cooling tubes restricting flow and that worsens my problem. Now I am going to remove the radiator and take it too a radiator shop to have it disassembled, cleaned and flushed..... I would like to get some kind of filter to install between my engine and top radiator intake to catch residue before it enters the radiator. Does anyone know if a filter is available to do this?

Hey Beachbum they are called Gano filters and they work real nice. they have a plastic type and a bronze type choose which one you want and use to protect you radiator.
Good luck

I've used one... just be sure to keep an eye on it. They get plugged easily, so they need cleaned every so often.

Good Luck!

Yeah, I use a gano filter on my mustang. I get a good amount of debris sometimes. I recommend it, don't expect flow problems. Especially when yo trap and get rid of the debris with the filter. Instead of letting it get into the radiator.
