Hey landcrab i hope you get it sorted the heating on my Bingo is the best i have ever had on a diesel, warms up really quick.
I only ever had to flush an old Ford matrix and it was well and truly blocked, presumably Radweld was the culprit. I took the pipes off and Jubilee clipped a hose to it and gave it full mains pressure and it fired some really dirty orange gunge everywhere so make sure the exit is pointing somewhere you don't mind getting dirty.
So where does this bit go then ?
thanks lads ill be having a go at it soon. the engine is getting warm enouth and the heater is warm but i think it could be a lot better. the son in law has just put a new heater rad in his van (ldv ) it never use to put out any heat now he said it burns his legs when its on high.i could do with some of that lol.

Consider bleeding the cooling system prior to doing other works, may save you some grief and expense.
Oh and be careful about using full mains water pressure as you may damage your heat exchanger, mains water is normally above engine coolant pressure.
