98 eclipse gs cooling flush

I purchased a really nice 98 Eclipse GS with some issues. Looks like whoever owned it before, dumped oil in the coolant reservoir. I'm getting ready to do a full top end rebuild. What would be the best solution to flush all the oil out of the cooling system?

Side note: I'm doing a rebuild from head gasket up and also changing all rubber hoses.

There are radiator flush things you can buy.

Never used one - but if radiator really clogged up - I would go for a new one.

Hope block or head isnīt cracked and thatīs why there is oil in coolant.

Might be a good idea to verify that first before you do a rebuild.

As Xrxaa01 has pointed out oil in the coolant is typically a sign of much larger issues and requires a full investigation before digging into anything.
