New parts prep question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So all my new stuff arrives today for a full new loop, i heard i should flush the parts prior to assembling the loop to clean out nasty stuff left over during manufacturing.

if so, which parts do i flush and how?

Flush out the rads. You can do it with warm water and white vinegar.

Or if you want to get really spiffy about it and do everything at once fill up 1 side of the sink with HOT water have the pump first and have the pump hooked to everything then empty into the other side of the sink, it'd be fun and effective.
