BUT... I use vinegar to wash copper and brass
Thanks for the heads up. I decided against a clean in the end as it was taking too long to do what I initially wanted!

Could of been worse indeed.
It appears the kink was not the source of the noise at all. Noise seems to be the same, maybe it will get better with bleeding.
But it was a successful pump mod, hooked up to my fan controller and now running at 70% of its original, cant run it any lower than that otherwise it doesnt turn on at boot. Unfortunately though, it still makes a dull humming sound. Time to think of a new mounting system me thinks!
And I must purchase parts to fit a drain port next time I clean system out.
