I don't know for sure, but can't you just get a radiator flush kit to get out the sludge? It's worth asking the guy at the parts house about.

In such extreme cases of cooling system sludge build up, I would take it to a shop for a professional flushing and cleansing.

I would suggest a car radiator specialist type shop - they'll know how to NOT cause more damage to the system.

See "Related Questions" below for more about flushing it yourself
