I am going to try and start my engine soon and was wondering about getting the water into the block. The block has no water in it right now. If I fill the radiator, this still leaves the block without water during initial startup. Is it possible to fill the enitre cooling passages with water prior to fire up? If I try to fill through the temp sensor hole, will it fill up enough so that the block is entirely full, or at least close enough that I wont damage anything? Or, is there another method I am not aware of that I should follow? Someone gave me a good idea about a Tic-Tac between the thermostat, but it is a little late for that now.
