Here's what I would do if I were in your position. Pull the coolant drain plug on the radiator, open the overflow tank, remove the air bleeder screw from top of radiator, put hose into the over flow tank.
Now turn the hose on and start the car with the heat on full blast and hold rpms steady at about 3~4k. If the needle for the water temp starts going beyond the 12 o'clock turn off the car and let it cool for a few minutes.
Continue running the car until clear water is coming out the radiator bleed screw. Once you've done that run the water threw for a little more to make sure everything is out. Probably another couple of minutes to be safe.
Now drain the block and the radiator and turn off the hose. Let everything drain out and fill with your distilled water and coolant. At this point you'll need to follow the normal coolant fill so as to not get air bubbles in the system
