Perkins T6.354 Coolant R&R

Draining and replacing coolant from Perkins T6.354's (circa 1986). No cooling issues just time to renew coolant. Not sure which coolant to use..currently filled with Prestone type green/yellow antifreeze......local Perkins dealer says to use Full Strength "Old School" Green Ethylene Glycol from NAPA and dilute 50/50 with distilled water. Transatlantic Diesels is telling me to use Fleetguard Orange Extended Life HD Diesel Truck antifreeze. Please advise....Thanks!

The manifolds in that engine are cast iron, so almost anything will work. Just don't mix them.
