    you could try that for a start but drop the oil/water mixture out first and clean out the header tank, the best way to clean all the sludge out is just to use some really cheap oil and a new filter (cheapy one again) and run it for 500 miles then change it again for some better stuff.

    had a quick look today and drained the oil
    as i removed the drain plug about 2 pints of water shot out
    after that a nice grey sludge started comming out about 2 gallons lol
    is it possible the oil cooler is mixing the water and oil or am i just wishfull thinking?
