Anybody know the radiator capacity of the:
T-35B
T-37

It's time to replace the antifreeze in my cars and if you read the article in Bugantics on antifreeze you will note that you should be using IAT technolgy instead of the newer OAT. In the US the best choice with IAT is Zerex Original Green available at NAPA.

All cooling water remove. Then one has the correct quantity, and one can mix freeze protection with the exact quantity :)

It is next to impossible to catch all the water as it drains from the rad unless you have very large pan of about 4 ft in diameter.

And how much water stays in the engine? This is a common problem when replacing coolant of boats (dual loop systems) or adding additives. You could use a "coolant meter" to create the desired mix. I would flush with fresh water first.
