That's it and it's simple.  Pump it up and set it down
on the block.  Other cars with cable accuated systems
need to be disconnected and wedged open.  BTW, I use
the Prestone flush tee.  I can connect it easily in
line with the afterrun pump.  Just DON'T run cold
water through a warm/hot block while shut off!  I do
it with the car running and have been for 20+ yrs.
without damage.
