If the motorex has silicates then you can't use it. Silicates will ruin the water pump in a few months.

Prestone is good. You can also try these;

Fleetguard ESXtreme
Texaco Extended Life
SynLube™ Synthetic Coolant/Anti-Freeze
Maxima Coolinol
Spectro Coolant

Don't ask me where to buy any of them as I don't know. I had to have the Texaco stuff ordered specially. I worked in a radiator recon shop for years so I pick up info about the subject. Dex-Cool isn't my favourite, there is lots of talk in racing circles about gel seperation, foamingand other problems. I wouldn't be inclined to use coolant that I had just laying on a shelf. Cheaper and easier to get the right stuff than doing it the cheapskate way and later on having to replaceyour water pump.

Hey Redwing, you were spot on about the Type II stuff. Rathdown Motors in Dublin have it in gallon tubs. I read the favourable articles about the Type II before but didn't realize it was so close to hand. Thanks.:clapper:
