I forgot what drove me to do this but many years ago I pulled my heater and 
backflushed it.  The amount of crud I got out of that thing was amazing.  
Since both hoses connect at the top any crud that gets in there stays there.  
Using a hose I flushed it one way and then the other and back and forth 
until the amount of stuff coming out reduced to the point that I thought I was 
starting to waste my time (either that or I got bored with the process).

I don't know if it helped or not since I have my TR6 for cold weather 
driving but it could help.
