do it as well as you can,but learn to do it better
First thought "that's a great idea"
then I wondered what alloys they are using to need this protection?
Are they going "above and beyond" to produce ultra long life engines or is it a band-aid to compensate for a compromise elsewhere.

That said, I wish coolant filters were more common.
I'm talking of experience with 70,s / 80,s Cummins in me cranes V504/ V555,s and 240/260/290 straight sixes ... all had at least one or two water filters fitted to their coolant systems .. weren't cheap either .. no idea if the more modern varieties still fit them?
could always fit a remote unit in the heater plumbing or any other circulatory lines, on just about any motor (y)

Had a visit by another one of these unpleasant beasts. I picked it up in the dark without realising what is - fortunately it had drowned it's self.
