Lester,still tending to the block having some old dirt of material in it. 
Take bottom hose and use your house water hose to force water through the 
system with the thermostat out.  Keep the water hose ticht with rags to 
force the water through.  See how much gunk comes out.  Will give you an 
idea of what you are dealing with in the block.
