bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbfrg t is electrolysis causing failures in aluminum heater cores. Thanks to a tip a member posted here, the remedy is to run a ground wire from your inlet hose on the heater to somewhere on the frame.
You need to make sure it's all
The heads, heater core, engine, oil filter adapter, radiator ALL need to be connected to a good ground.
Any ungrounded element means corrosion; the higher the resistance of the ground connection, the faster the corrosion.
Aluminum usually wears the most, especially if you use any stainless steel anywhere.
