Maybe. Hard to tell with all the grease. I doubt the shop recycled your coolant, but even fresh bug joos will contaminate quickly if the cooling passages inside the block aren't well flushed out first.

Well, Idk how ima fix it but I dont want to leave it un fixed. Some how or another Ive gotta flush out the block. I had a chat with my shop so for the time being my fix is on hold and Im taking ir down there tomorow. I filtered the coolant on the way back in with a shop towel.

Well, the shop is now under new management come to find out the mechanic that did my truck got both the proverbial and literal boot long ago. They agreed to correct the brake line issue in front and install a clutch slave cyl and the wheel cylinder they never replaced for free with two day time limit so Im happy enough. I don't want to fool with the freeze plugs right now, so Ima try a fix from a friend in flushing the block via bottom hose disconect and hose water, a gallon of simple green, run up to optemp and then flush again before install of my new radiator.

Ok, got the truck back, my clutch is now 110% better with the new slave, and they custom made rubber front brake hoses that go all the way from frame to hub, brakes are still nice and hard right at the top so I'm happy. In other news I may have a shot at a pile of IH nos service parts, so look out for that. Will most likely all be Farmall parts but you never know, I'm sure this forum can absorb all of it if needed, and also help id if necessary.

Good news about the shop un-f****ing that terrible work. It was shameful, really.
Simple Green cuts grease, not rust. Use CLR, but don't leave it in for weeks...It'll eat the hoses. Drive it around for a day or so with it in the cooling system, then flush. Refill with de-ionized water from the supermarket. Plus whatever ratio of antifreeze you're comfortable with.
Glad to hear this project is pointed in the right direction again. Keep the updates coming!

Full advice was run simple green, flushing, and a rust preventing additive in the new coolant. If you think clr works better i will do that. Just dont want to screw up my shiny new rad. Im going to need capacity estimate on this thing as well. Since the block drain is pluged and not fixable anytime soon I will have to flush with distilled water. Sii radiator but otherwise stock

Back in the days before nanny-state-ism really took hold, the chemicals you could get in prestone radiator flush kits were actually caustic enough to do a good job at loosening rust and scale. Imagine that if you will...a product that actually did what it was advertised to do. So what if had carcinogens? Anyway, the store bought rad flushes of today are all pretty much citrus based. They'll loosen a small percentage, but too much will be left behind. I would also agree that CLR might be more effective in this case than simple green. Simple is a great product, it just might not be the best tool for this job. But I would want to make sure it's safe for aluminum before I used it.

Well according to G@@gle, clr should NOT be used on alluminum. I think In my case I will go with the simple green for cleaning and a rust inhibitor in the new coolant. The new rad has a 5 year warranty, I would rather not risk the clr not liking my heater core. The coolant I drained didn't seem rusty per say, but real cloudy.
In other news, it, aswell as myself survived the trip to a show today
