To be fair mistermcgregor (and I didn`t want to re-start this) but I think its to do with inorganic compounds or something like that - there are bits on Google and the car forums about putting newer style anti-freeze in cast iron blocks and to be honest I wouldn`t put it in my Cropmaster and 990 - that gets blue.
Having said that the VW PDI group engines are still using cast iron blocks and they recommend pink (but their own stuff) - I know as that's whats in the better half`s Fabia PDI parked outside!!!
Not sure whether its fact or a well known internet myth to be honest????

[quote="mistermcgregor"]I must agree with the posts by Ollek on this subject. I have never seen or heard of cast iron being destroyed by Ethylene Glycol antifreeze with lnhibitors but I have seen the consequences of its absence other than freezing. A detailed explanation of how this occurs with red and green coloured solutions etc would be most interesting to everyone.[/quote

Surely it is up to the original poster to decide when enough correct information has been given and not told by others.
