Hi all. I went to do a proper flushing of my cooling system the other day, including the purchase of a T adapter so I could hook up a hose.

I have some instructions for general cooling systems, but the Cobra's hose arrangement stumped me. The instructions I have say to put the T into the heater inlet hose, but I can't figure out the hoses on this car. They all meet under the driver's side of the radiator in a four-way junction.

Furthermore, the only access to the contents of the radiator is through the reservoir.

So:

1. Where do I install the T?
2. When pumping water through the system with a hose, where should it come out? Will it come out of the reservoir filler hole, meaning that's where I should put the deflector spout?
3. Do I need to bleed air from the system at some point? Where and how?

Thanks for any help.

I hope you get some good answers, I was just starting to wonder that myself.
