No PVC attachment but I have a hose attachment that fits the openings. About to do another flush right now.In September to November I get the best work done since the weather stabilizes here. Just persevere. How’s the flushing going? Did you fabricate the pvc to do a reverse flush?
I back flushed the heater core and the radiator itself on the first day and the radiator again yesterday. Had a pretty good flow that went clear on the upper radiator opening. I haven't figured out the best way to flush the engine itself.you know as I’m following this thread I can’t help but think you’ve got some blockage somewhere and you really need to back flush. I’d even start inspecting all of the hoses even if they look good.
Hey if you haven’t , check that fan clutch. Even if new, it could be a dud. I wouldn’t rule it out . Saw a video on YouTube and it was a faulty (new) fan clutch causing a dodge truck to overheating
whoa, I would literally stop what you are doing and get that fan clutch replaced ASAP. Amazon has the AISIN ones really cheap.
The Thermocure will get ALL the rust out, but yeah, you’ll have to run a ton of water through to get the remnants of Thermocure out. I did similar to you and flushed most of the Thermocure out with a hose.The Thermocure kept the temp in a great place all week. It was pretty remarkable.
This is what came out:

The guys from Thermocure said if I can eventually get clear water to come out with no flakes I won't need another round. I guess we'll see if that rust was helping keep anything from leaking but I'd rather find out now.
It took 30 gallons of water to get things to run clear. I extended the heater hose-to-engine connection so I could use a a garden hose to flush. I also flushed some from the top of the radiator out these hoses.
I got one round of distilled water back in but it's going to take more rounds of running the engine, drain, and fill. I could tell from the funnel that the Thermocure wasn't all the way out.
I also realized I have a hard pipe that is missing chunks from rust on the end. Rust colored goo came off when removing the hose. This is the same expensive pipe that the PO used sealant on at the other end near the engine. Going to have to take this off and trim off the rust. I guess I can just use a longer hose to the firewall. Unless I find this pipe somewhere where it isn't $150.
I will report back if Thermocure actually clears the water up or not. I appreciate all of the prior advice. I am almost done cleaning things up.

Look you need to hurry or else your going to chase your tail. Once you start removing thermocure / flushing it out , the inside will begin to rust. You have to do this fast or in a day because overnight it will rust again.
Ask me how I know, just go ahead
you got to get your coolant in there sooner than later or keep it empty until you can replace the parts and refill
Perhaps a dumb question. Do you remove the thermostat every time you flush ? I know it's a PITA but that assures the whole system is flushed
