dmax, after draining and filling the radiator 2x i was still getting orange. I decided to open the bleeder completely while adding more water through the rad cap, hence the 6+ gal. It was messy but i had the conical air filter off so coolant was just running down the frame rail. The car was running and warmed up with the heater blasted on, windows down. The car ended up taking another 1/4 gal after driving around a bit. I think ill leave it as is for now with tap water. I'm glad to hear its only a 2.5gal volume, so my mix is almost dead on. Thanks for the pointers all!
